Adult population diagnosed with cancer by country 2018

Prevalence of diagnosed cancer conditions in selected countries as of 2018

by John Elflein, last edited Apr 11, 2019
Adult population diagnosed with cancer by country 2018 In a recent report it was shown that the U.S. has the highest prevalence of diagnosed cancer cases among all adults, with around 9 percent of the adult population having some cancer diagnosis. Cancer is the second leading cause of death from chronic diseases worldwide after cardiovascular diseases.
Global cancer risks

Globally, cancer accounts for about 1 in every 6 deaths. Many cancer cases are caused by behavioral and dietary risks including tobacco, alcohol and physical inactivity. The prevalence of tobacco smoking is on the decline and is expected to decline further in the future. Smoking has been linked to lung cancer, other upper respiratory cancers and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Among other cancer risk factors, alcohol consumption has been linked to liver and colorectal cancers, as well as other non-communicable diseases. Many European countries have high rates of alcohol consumption.

Global cancer prevalence

Globally, trachea, bronchus and lung cancers are responsible for the most cancer deaths, followed by liver cancer. Lifestyle modification is one of the easiest ways people can reduce their risk of these types of cancer. Among all cancer patients globally, a majority had a history of alcohol consumption. Similarly, in China, EU5 and Russia, over a quarter of all cancer patients had a history of smoking.
