Every year, 7 million people die from cancer. 16 million new cancer cases and 10 million deaths are expected by 2020. This colorful new atlas illustrates the latest available data on the cancer epidemic worldwide, showing causes, stages of development, and prevalence rates of different types of cancers by gender, income group and region. Information is presented in clear, easy-to-understand graphics, including maps, tables, charts, and illustrations. Topics of interest to health care professionals, government officials, researchers, and members of the media include: Mechanism of tumour development; Risk factors; Cancer in children; Cancer survivors; Cancer registries; Research; Primary prevention; Early detection; Management and treatment; Cancer organizations; Health education; Policies and legislation; and the future of the epidemic. It clearly lays out the global reach of cancer. It includes a helpful glossary and a brief history of cancer; and unbiased information from an international multi-organizational team of respected public health and epidemiology experts. Explore the global picture of cancer in this fascinating exploration of the economics of this disease, both in terms of health care and commercial interests, and the steps being taken to curb the epidemic, from research and screening to cancer management programs and health education.
