The American Cancer Society said more than two million lives have been saved over the past two decades due to better cancer detection and treatments.

Disease Statistics 2018, the association's yearly take a gander at occurrence, mortality and survival, tracks the decadeslong decrease in mortality as driven to a great extent by falling demise rates among four malignancies - lung, bosom, prostate and colorectal tumor.

'A decline in consumption of cigarettes is credited with being the most important factor in the drop in cancer death rates, ' Dr Brawley said.

In 2018, 1,735,350 new cancer cases and 609,640 cancer deaths are projected to occur in the US, the report found.

'Strikingly though, tobacco remains by far the leading cause of cancer deaths today, responsible for almost three in ten cancer deaths, ' he added. Overall, the cancer death rate in 2015 was 14 percent higher for non-Hispanic blacks than for non-Hispanic whites, down from a peak of 33 percent in 1993.

More than 2.3 million people have not died of cancer since 1991 who otherwise would have if cancer rates had remained unchanged, the group said in its annual report on cancer. Among individuals 65 and more established, the passing rate for blacks was 7 percent higher than for whites, a littler divergence that possible mirrors the impacts of Medicare's widespread medicinal services get to.

The cancer death rate is lowest among Asian Americans.

Among Americans more youthful than 65, the death rate was just about a third higher among blacks than whites - with considerably bigger variations in many states.

Cancer deaths are down another two percent.

A woman has a 1 in 8 chance of developing breast cancer over her lifetime; a man has a 1 in 9 chance of being diagnosed with prostate cancer, the American Cancer Society says. The most common cause of cancer death is still lung cancer.

Lung cancer incidence rates continued to decline about twice as fast in men as in women, reflecting differences in tobacco use and more smoking among females in some populations.

Early detection and treatment has also helped drive declines, the report states.

Some states in the report, such as NY and MA, have seen the racial mortality gap disappear for whites and blacks over 65.
