Decreasing cancer death rate in the U.S., but worries about breast, prostate, and uterine cancers
The overall cancer mortality rate in the U.S. has decreased continuously since 1991, resulting in an overall drop of 33%: approximately 3.8 million cancer deaths averted. This progress is due to the uptake of screening for breast, colorectal, and prostate cancers. Of concern is the rising incidence of breast, prostate, and uterine corpus cancers, that have a wide racial disparity in mortality and are amenable to early detection.
