Population of U.S. Cancer Survivors Expected to Grow to more than 22 Million by 2030

The report was published in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society. A companion consumer edition was published at the same time.​
The report says even though the rates of new cancer cases are decreasing in men and staying about the same in women, the number of survivors is growing. This is due partly to better treatments that help people with cancer live longer; improvements in early detection that allow doctors to find cancer earlier when it is often easier to treat; and a growing and aging population.
