In spite of the sincere efforts and research of the scientists, fighting against cancer in the field of innovative and improved treatment has become relatively easy. In this report, you can understand the figures mentioned in the report.
* Death rates of cancer decreased 23 percent from 1991 to 2012
Cancer death rate was the highest between 1991 and 2012, in 1991 when 215 out of 10,000 people died of cancer. After this, due to smoking boycott, medical development, and early detection, this rate started decreasing. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 1.7 million deaths were avoided in this 21 years.
* More than 30 percent of cancers are preventable
By following a healthy diet, exercising regularly, restricting alcoholism, and avoiding smoking, you can reduce the risk of developing cancer. According to the World Health Organization, HBV and HPV vaccines in developing countries have reduced the death of more than 20 percent of cancer.
* Child mortality in cancer decreased by 2 percent in a decade
From 2003 to 2012, only 0-19 years of childhood deaths have not been reduced to cancer, adult decreases. According to the US National Cancer Institute, men’s death rates in cancer decreased 1.8 percent annually, compared to 1.4 percent of women.
* The relative rate of survival of five years till 5 years of all cancers, dating from 2005 to 2011, is 69 percent
The relative survival rate is that cancer survival is at least a few years after cancer diagnosis compared to the total population. According to the American Cancer Society, the average survival rate for five years from 1975 to 1977 was 49 percent. Life expectancy increased due to advances in treatment and early detection of cancer.
* Five years of relative survival rate after diagnosis of breast cancer at the initial stage is about 100 percent
In the case of breast cancer, the overall survival rate for all five years is 89%, in the case of phase 0 or 1, it is about 100 percent. The American Cancer Society, recommends annually to mammogram women to identify breast cancer early in the 45’s.
* The relative survival rate for children’s cancer is more than 80 percent
According to the American Cancer Society, the survival rate for the 5 years was 58 percent in the mid-1970s. But due to fancy and improved treatment, the number has increased to 83 percent. The five-year survival rate is different depending on the type of cancer. Currently, the rate of survival rates for 85% of leukemia (which is considered to be the death penalty).
* Endocytic cancer patients survive more than 95 percent of the five years
The initial survival rate of 99 percent of the five years relative to the cancer diagnosis, at this stage, is 68 percent of testicular cancer. According to the US National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology and Result Program, even at the advanced stage of cancer (when cancer has spread to other parts of the body), this rate is 74 percent.
