Overall, Americans are dying less frequently from cancer, and cancer incidence for men is dropping, according to a new report examining data from 1999 to 2016 from the CDC, National Cancer Institute, the American Cancer Society and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries. The rate of new cases of cancer in women remained flat between 1999 and 2016, according to the report.
Despite the good news, black men are more likely to die from cancer than others. Female Asian and Pacific Islanders had the lowest death rates from cancer of all groups.
