The Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer (1975-2012) shows that death rates continued to decline for all cancers combined. The overall cancer death rates for both sexes combined decreased by 1.5% per year from 2003 to 2012. Incidence rates—new cancer cases that are diagnosed per 100,000 people in the U.S.—decreased among men and remained stable for women between 2003 and 2012.

Most people say that they would prefer to be cared for at home if they were dying, but it’s unclear if the care they receive there would be as good as the care delivered at a hospital. However, a large study from Japan, published early online in Cancer, found that cancer patients who died at home tended to live longer than those who died in hospitals.

An analysis of US data from 2011 indicates that nearly 29 percent of cancer survivors are financially burdened as a result of their cancer diagnosis and/or treatment. Published early online in CANCER, the study also reveals that such hardships can have lasting physical and mental effects on cancer survivors.
