Between 2010 and 2020, the CDC saw the number of new cancer cases in the United States to go up about 24% in men to more than 1 million cases per year, and by about 21% in women to more than 900,000 cases per year.
The kinds of cancer that were expected to increase the most are:
Melanoma (the deadliest kind of skin cancer) in white men and women.
Prostate, kidney, liver, and bladder cancers in men.
Lung, breast, uterine, and thyroid cancers in women.
It is estimated that one out of every three women and one out of every two men will experience some form of cancer in their lifetime in the US.
We are here to help you during your cancer journey. We realize that not everyone can be cured of cancer, but we help our patients learn to LIVE successfully with their cancer.
This includes both innovative chemical and emotional techniques, as well as the implementation of cutting edge and novel therapies that have been proven to be safe for cancer patients.
We support our patients before, during and after their surgical, radiation or chemotherapy treatments, or whatever path they choose, and always honor each patient’s individual choice of cancer care.
