Number of Cancer Survivors Growing According to New Report

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention There are 9.8 million cancer survivors in the United States, according to a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI). A cancer survivor is defined as anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer, from the time of diagnosis through the balance of his or her life. The findings are published in the June 25 issue of CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, "Cancer Survivorship – United States, 1971 – 2001."

The data show that: 64 percent of adults whose cancer is diagnosed today can expect to be living in five years; Breast cancer survivors make up the largest group of cancer survivors (22 percent) followed by prostate cancer survivors (17 percent) and colorectal cancer survivors (11 percent); The majority (61 percent) of cancer survivors are aged 65 and older. In response to the growing number of cancer survivors in the United States, many organizations are involved in survivorship issues.
