Description:

Cancer continues to be of paramount concern to citizens across the United States, and the Center for Disease Control has developed this well laid out site to inform the general public about the numerous forms of the disease, along with providing data about state and national statistics regarding the most prevalent forms of the disease. Some of the more compelling material released on the site includes a slide presentation on screening for prostate cancer and the Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer, 1975-2000. Visitors looking for information on specific types of cancer will want to visit the Topic Areas section which features detailed profiles and research information about breast, cervical, ovarian, and skin cancers. Those looking for statistical information will want to peruse the national data section that contains highly specific information about the incidence of various types of cancer throughout the United States. Additionally, data on cancer incidence by states is also available for consideration here as well.
