As global cancer cases surge, the U.S. will also see nearly 2 million new cases of cancer and over 600,000 deaths in 2022, according to a new report published in January 14th.
The annual report from the American Cancer Society estimates that 1,918,030 Americans will be diagnosed with cancer, equivalent to 5,250 new cases being detected every day. This is up from approximately 1.8 million new cases that likely occurred in 2021.
Both figures — for cases and deaths — are the highest estimates in the past 15 years.
