Cancer Statistics, 2010
Every year since 1967, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has published an annual Cancer Statistics article in CA. Clinicians have turned to this article for a concise summary of the most up-to-date cancer incidence, mortality, and survival data, as well as estimates of new cancer cases and deaths for the current year based on incidence data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results program of the National Cancer Institute and mortality data from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Through 2005, this article invariably appeared in our January/February issue. Since 2006, the publication date has varied somewhat, depending on when mortality data are released from NCHS. We regret that “Cancer Statistics, 2010” will not appear in this issue. However, this article will be published online ahead of print as soon as possible and in print in the next available issue.
