There is shortage of radiotherapy machines in low-income countries, including Ethiopia. Data on adverse effects of this on cancer outcomes are limited, however. Herein, we examined the extent of waiting time for radiotherapy and its association with disease progression based on a prospective cohort study of women diagnosed with stage IA-IVA cervical cancer in Addis Ababa and who were scheduled to receive radiotherapy at Tikur Anbessa Specialized Hospital, the only hospital that provides radiothe...

Brain and other central nervous system (CNS) tumors are among the most fatal cancers and account for substantial morbidity and mortality in the United States. Population-based data from the Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States (a combined data set of the National Program of Cancer Registries [NPCR] and Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results [SEER] registries), NPCR, National Vital Statistics System and SEER program were analyzed to assess the contemporary burden of malignant an...

BACKGROUND Obesity is associated with a substantial health and economic burden in the general population in the United States. This study estimates the excess health care utilization and medical spending associated with overweight and obesity among long-term cancer survivors. METHODS Long-term cancer survivors (≥2 years after their diagnosis) aged ≥18 years (N = 12,547) were identified from the nationally representative 2008-2016 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey. A 2-part modeling approach was u...

Background: null The American Cancer Society (ACS) and the NCI collaborate every 5 to 8 years to update the methods for estimating the numbers of new cancer cases and deaths in the current year for the U.S. and individual states. Herein, we compare our current projection methodology with the next generation of statistical models. null Methods: null A validation study was conducted comparing current projection methods (vector autoregression for incidence; Joinpoint regression for mortality) with ...

Abstract null null Background null Evidence about the association between structural racism and mortality in the United States is limited. We examined the association between ongoing structural racism, measured as inequalities in adulthood income between White and Black children with similar parental household income (economic mobility gap) in a recent birth cohort, and Black-White disparities in death rates (mortality gap) overall and for major causes. null null null Methods null Sex-, race/eth...

BACKGROUND Annual lung cancer screening (LCS) with low dose chest computed tomography in older current and former smokers (ie,, eligible adults) has been recommended since 2013. Uptake has been slow and variable across the United States (US). We estimated the LCS rate and growth at the national and state level between 2016-2018. METHODS The American College of Radiology's Lung Cancer Screening Registry (LCSR) was used to capture screening events. Population-based surveys, US Census, and cancer r...

Background null Although prostate cancer (PCa) is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men of sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), little is known about its management and survival. The objective of the current study was to describe the presentation, patterns of diagnosis, treatment, and survival of patients with PCa in 10 countries of SSA. null Methods null In this observational registry study with data collection from 2010 to 2018, the authors drew a random sample of 738 patients with PCa who were regis...

BACKGROUND The American Cancer Society, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Cancer Institute, and North American Association of Central Cancer Registries collaborate to provide annual updates on cancer incidence and mortality and trends by cancer type, sex, age group, and racial/ethnic group in the United States. In this report, we also examine trends in stage-specific survival for melanoma of the skin (melanoma). METHODS Incidence data for all cancers from 2001 through 2017 and...
