FIGURE 1. Ten Leading Cancer Types for the Estimated New Cancer Cases and Deaths by Sex, 2010.
*Excludes basal and squamous cell skin cancers and in situ carcinoma except urinary bladder. Estimates are rounded to the nearest 10.

National Cancer Institute (NCI), covering approximately 26% of the US population.2-5 Incidence data
(1995-2006) for projecting new cancer cases were obtained from cancer registries that participate in the
SEER program or the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC)’s National Program of Cancer
Registries (NPCR), through the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR)
covering approximately 89% of the US population.
State-specific incidence rates were obtained from
NAACCR based on data collected by cancer registries
participating in the SEER program and the NPCR.6

The precise number of cancer cases diagnosed each
year in the nation and in every state is unknown
because cancer case reporting is incomplete in some

years behind the current year due to the time required for data collection and compilation. Therefore, we project the expected number of new cancer
