To provide data on sub-populations in the U.S. within the highest incidence rate of cancer, including by their environment, industry, their lifestyle, their demographic, family history, screened genetic predisposition to cancer (e.g. BRCA gene), and so forth
For population of any age, cancer incidence and death is higher amongst men than women. However for younger populations between 20-49 years, cancer incidences are higher for women.
Cancer rates as a whole are decreasing among men, and remaining stable for women.
Cancer rates for Asian Pacific populations in the US tend to be significantly lower compared to other races. However amongst these populations, Native Hawaiian and Samoans had a higher cancer rate, specifically for prostate, lung, and colorectum cancer. The highest rates of cancer in a demographic group is African American men, with an incidence of 239.9 out of 100,000. Cancer rates are lowest for Asian Pacific Islander women with just 88.3 out of 100,000 getting cancer. There were 1,735,350 new cases of cancer diagnosed in the US in 2018, and 609,640 cancer related deaths.
Over the course of a lifetime, approximately 38.4% of US citizens will be diagnosed with cancer.
