WVU Cancer Institute's Cancer Prevention and Control, in collaboration with the West Virginia Cancer Registry, has released the 2017 Cancer Burden Report. The report provides updated statewide, age-adjusted incidence rates and counts for cancer diagnosed among West Virginia residents from 2010 to 2014.
In addition to the usual updates on incidence and mortality, this year’s edition also includes highlighted cancers – breast, cervical, lung, colorectal (also known as colon and rectum), and a new section on HPV-associated cancers. There are summaries, one page infographics, and WV resource pages to address these cancers, as well as a Frequently Asked Questions section.
