Importance of Screening
Over one million people get cancer each year.
About 1 out of every 2 American men and 1 out of every 3 American women will have some type of cancer at some point during their lifetime.
Anyone can get cancer at any age; but about 77% of all cancers are diagnosed in people age of 55 and older. Cancer can be found in Americans of all racial and ethnic groups, but the rate of cancer occurrence varies from group to group.
