SDI Productions / E+

The American Cancer Society estimates more than 2 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in 2024 for the first time ever.

Among that figure, 63,000 Georgia residents will be diagnosed with cancer.

Cancer rates are increasing for many common cancers, including 6 of the top 10.

No one knows why.

The overall death rate for cancer has declined steadily over the last 30 years.

This downward trend is attributed to advances in medicine and technology, early cancer detection, and less smokers.

For the first time, more cancer cases will be diagnosed at an average of 5,500 new cases per day.

Health experts are predicting a rise in 6 of the 10 most common cancers – breast, prostate, endometrial, pancreatic, kidney, and skin cancer.

The rise in common cancers are related to an increase in obesity, which may cut the decline of cancer death rates in half.

That’s because when more Americans are diagnosed with common cancers, more people are likely to die.

The American Cancer Society estimates 611,000 deaths from cancer in 2024. That’s 1,600 deaths from cancer per day.

The other 4 top cancers are lung, colorectal (colon and rectum), bladder, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

More incidences of common cancer will be diagnosed among people under age 55.

These include:

  • Colorectal cancer
  • Liver cancer in women
  • Oral cancer (HPV)
  • Cervical cancer in women ages 30 to 44
  • Colorectal and cervical screening tests can prevent cancer altogether, according to the American Cancer Society.
