In addition, trend data for cancer cases and deaths are compared by sex and race. Pennsylvania trends are compared to the United States trends based on the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program. There are also discussions of risk factors, treatment, survival, and symptoms for the top four sites (prostate, breast, lung, and colon).
