Number of Cancer Survivors Up and Expected to Continue to Rise


There are nearly 14 million cancer survivors in the United States, and according to the American Association for Cancer Research, that number is expected to rise to 18 million by 2022.

But the second Annual Report on Cancer Survivorship shows survival rates are not the same across different types of cancer.

"The best and latest findings in all major areas of cancer research" will come together at the American Association for Cancer Research's annual meeting.

The meeting begins next Saturday, April 6, in Washington.
