While nine of the 17 most common cancers of men and eight of the 18 most common cancers of women decreased in incidence in the U.S. (2009-2013), liver cancer had the greatest increase in incidence for both men and women (Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer, 1975 – 2014).  Death rates decreased for 11 of the top 16 cancers in men and for 13 of the top 18 cancers in women.  However, liver cancer death rates increased for men and women (Ibid).  This increase in liver cancer incidence and death rates can be attributed in large part to the most common liver diseases seen in primary care.

 

Your practice can have a profound effect on liver cancer incidence and death rates through readily available best practices.
