Epidemiology and methods of cancer and thier functions.
We provide a concise overview of current cancer epidemiology in this short report, drawing on data from the official databases of the World Health Organization and the American Cancer Society. We also present up-to-date data on the incidence, mortality, and survival rates of the 15 most common cancers worldwide. In terms of cause-specific Disability-Adjusted Life Years (DALYs), cancer is the human disease with the greatest clinical, social, and economic costs. The risk of cancer is 20.2% for those aged 0-74. There were 18 million new instances of cancer diagnosed in 2018, with lung, breast, and prostate cancers accounting for the majority of those cases respectively.Author(s): Salena Watson
