New from CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control

Two Out of Three People with Invasive Cancer Survive Five Years or More
A new report found that the most common cancer sites continue to be the prostate, female breast, lung, and colon and rectum. Among these common cancer sites, five-year relative survival was 97% for prostate cancer, 88% for breast cancer, 63% for colorectal cancer, and 18% for lung cancer.

Screening for Colorectal Cancer: Optimizing Quality (CME)
These continuing education courses provide guidance and tools for clinicians on the optimal ways to implement screening for colorectal cancer to help ensure that patients receive maximum benefit. There are two versions of this course: one for primary care providers and one for clinicians who perform colonoscopy. Continuing education is available for both versions.

International Cancer Control
Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide. In 2012, more than 14 million new cases of cancer were diagnosed around the world. That number is expected to reach 19 million by 2025. We could prevent at least one-third of the 8 million annual cancer deaths through screening tests, vaccinations, and lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking. CDC is working with partners to improve coordination of cancer prevention and control programs globally and reduce the cancer burden in low- and middle- income countries.
