NEW YORK – Good news in the fight against Cancer, A new report found fewer Americans are dying from the disease.
The annual report to the nation on the status of cancer was published Thursday.
Researchers found from 2014 to 2018 the overall death rate from cancer declined by more than two percent in men, and over one and half percent in women.
The biggest declines were in Lung Cancer and Melanoma Cases.
Still there were troubling signs. Researchers say mortality rates rose in cases of Pancreatic Cancer, Brain Cancer and Cancers affecting the Nervous System.
They also saw declines slowed or disappeared when it came to Prostate, Colorectal and female Breast Cancers.
