POPULATION OF US CANCER SURVIVORS GROWS TO NEARLY 17 MILLON

The number of cancer survivors in the United States continues to go up. A new report by the American Cancer Society – in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute – estimates there are more than 16.9 million cancer survivors alive in the US today, and that number will grow to more than 22.1 million by 2030. The authors define “survivor” as anyone who’s ever had cancer, from the time of diagnosis for the rest of their life, although they acknowledge that not everyone with a history of cancer uses this term.

The report, “Cancer Treatment and Survivorship Statistics, 2019,” was published June 11, 2019 in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer  Society.  A companion consumer edition, Cancer Treatment and Survivorship Facts & Figures, 2019-2021, was published at the same time.​
