In addition to widely reported disparities in lifetime cancer risks between black and white populations, there are notable differences among specific Asian populations and between Alaska Native and other American Indian populations. Observed differences in lifetime cancer risks may be because of differences in incidence rates, but they also may reflect differential mortality rates from all causes other than the cancer of interest. Because the lifetime risk estimates are derived from cross-sectional incidence and mortality rates, results must be interpreted cautiously when it is known that events, such as the widespread and rapid implementation of a new screening test, have influenced disease rates.
