Introduction. Cancer is a major public health problem worldwide and is the second leading cause of death in the United States. In this article, we provide the estimated numbers of new cancer cases and deaths in in the United States nationally and for each state, as well as a comprehensive overview of cancer occurrence based on the most current population‐based data for cancer incidence.

Although cancer incidence and mortality overall are declining in all racial/ethnic groups in the United States, certain groups continue to be at increased risk of developing or dying from particular cancers.

Some key cancer incidence and mortality disparities among U.S. racial/ethnic groups include. Introduction. Overall lung cancer age-adjusted incidence rates in the United States peaked in among men and have stabilized in recent years among women [].Rates and trends for total lung cancer and by histologic type vary by gender and race [2–5].The dominant risk factor is cigarette smoking.
