Thomson Reuters regularly analyzes the 10-year rates of various kinds of cancer to track trends and changes. This study found dramatic, rapid increases for four kinds of cancer: thyroid, kidney, melanoma, and pancreas. Three kinds of cancer showed significant decreasing rates: colorectal, ovary, and uterine/cervical. Some rates remained relatively unchanged: breast, lung, and prostate. The rates represent the incidence of new cases per 100,000 of the U.S. population.
