Cancer survival in the United States is among the highest in the world, but black Americans still face a disproportionate burden of lower cancer survival.
“Our nation still falls short when it comes to promoting cancer prevention strategies in later life, even though over two-thirds of all new cancers are diagnosed among people aged 60 and older,” says Dr. Robyn Stone. A recent journal supplement “is an insightful resource for any health care clinician or public health professional who wants to learn more about this evolving and important area of research and practice.”
The Lung Cancer Screening Guidelines chart compares recommendations from the American Academy of Family Practice, American Association for Thoracic Surgery, American Cancer Society, American College of Chest Physicians, American Lung Association, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, National Comprehensive Cancer Network, and U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.
