Cancer — Types on the Rise

It takes a long time to compile statistics so the Centers for Disease Control’s latest stats on the disease are from 2020. The biggest surprise is the number of people under 50 being impacted by the disease and its many types.

In the U.S. in 2020 there were 1.6 million new cancer cases. The report also notes that one in five deaths in the U.S. is cancer caused. It is the second leading cause of death behind heart disease.

The news organization, Stacker took a look at the statistics and made a list of the 10 types of cancer that have increased the most in the 2022 data. It took the number of cases per 100,000 people for 2000, 2010 and 2020 to come up with the trends.
