Cancer remains a leading cause of death around the globe despite overall mortality rates in the U.S. declining 26 percent between 1991 and 2015, reports the National Cancer Institute (NCI). In 2018, more than 1.7 million people were diagnosed with cancer in the U.S., and 609,640 lost their lives. However, there were more than 15.5 million cancer survivors in America in 2016. Statistics suggest prevention and early cancer detection play an integral role in reducing mortality. In fact, early cancer detection methods are continuously evolving, offering hope to those that are currently going through or may hear the life-changing words of a cancer diagnosis and refining treatment options.
