Cancer Facts and Figures, Pennsylvania 2017
This informative brochure contains estimated projections for the number of
cancer cases and deaths by county and by major site (colorectal, breast, lung,
etc.) for 2017. 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). National, statewide and local contacts
for more information on specific types of cancer are included.
