Cancer Facts & Figures 2018, American Cancer Society (ACS), Atlanta, Georgia, 2018. Excludes basal and squamous cell skin and in situ carcinomas except urinary bladder.

Estimated new cases are based on 2000-2014 incidence rates reported by the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR).

Estimated deaths are based on 2001-2015 US mortality data, National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

a Estimated deaths for colon & rectum cancers are combined.

b Carcinoma in situ of the breast accounts for about 63,960 new cases annually, and melanoma in situ accounts for about 87,290 new cases annually.

c More deaths than cases suggests lack of specificity in recording underlying causes of death on death certificate.
