Cancer affects all population groups in the United States. But certain groups may bear a disproportionate burden of cancer compared with other groups. Cancer disparities (sometimes called cancer health disparities) are differences in cancer measures such as: incidence (new cases) prevalence (all existing cases) mortality (deaths).

This collection of charts and a related brief explore recent trends in health outcomes and treatment costs for cancer in both the U.S. and comparable countries (those with similarly large GDP and GDP per capita).

Compared to similar countries, the United States has higher rates of mortality for most of the leading causes of death, and generally performs worse on a variety of quality indicators. This book is the first of its kind to describe interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical studies. It views analyses of biomedical data sets, such as cancer morbidity and mortality, from a different and richer than classic epidemiological perspective by using mathematical modeling methods, including ones providing insights into probable mechanisms of human carcinogenesis.5/5(1).

The deaths included in this study represent % of all cancer deaths among individuals who were 25–64 years old and lived in most states in the United States and include a sufficiently large number of blacks to allow us to conduct race-specific by: Five year survival by type.

This is known as cancer disparities or cancer health disparities. Cancer disparities happen when there are higher rates of new cancer diagnoses and/or cancer deaths between population. The United States has better survival statistics compared to most other countries.

Whether this is simply because of better cancer treatment is arguable. A missed cancer diagnosis is. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States, although mortality rates are decreasing.
