New cancer diagnoses expected to hit record high this year

New cancer diagnoses in the U.S. are expected to top 2 million for the first time in 2024, driven in large part by an alarming increase in cancers among younger Americans, according to new American Cancer Society data.

By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near. {5T 451.1}

🩺 Texas cancer diagnoses expected to hit record high

Nearly 148,000 Texans are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in 2024, according to new American Cancer Society data.

  • That number is up from 2023's 139,000 projected new cases.

Why it matters: Increases are driven by diagnoses of younger Americans, and doctors are trying to figure out why they're seeing more young patients with cancer, Axios' Tina Reed reports.

The big picture: The proportion of people 65 and older diagnosed with cancer dropped from 61% to 58% in the last 30 years, even as the size of that group increased. The proportion of those diagnosed between ages 50 and 64 was largely stable, but those younger than 50 saw an increase in overall cancer incidence.

By the numbers: Texas ranks third among states for residents expected to be diagnosed with the disease this year.

  • More than 23,000 of Texas' projected diagnoses are expected to be for female breast cancer, nearly 21,000 for prostate cancer, and about 14,500 for lung and bronchus cancer.

Of note: The decline in cancer mortality has resulted in more than 4 million fewer deaths in the U.S. since 1991 when compared with the number of cancer deaths expected if rates had remained at their peak.

  • Still, the study projects cancer will kill nearly 612,000 people this year, up from a projected 609,820 in 2023.

🔬 Gene editing takes on cancer

Gene editing's next chapter will be focused on tackling cancers and uncovering new details about aging, top scientists in the field said this week.

  • The potential of CRISPR gene-editing technology was realized six months ago, when the Food and Drug Administration approved the first therapy that uses the system to treat sickle-cell anemia, Axios managing editor Alison Snyder reports.

👀 What we're watching: Scientists now are setting their sights on more complex molecular targets and trying to develop therapies for cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

  • The next unsolved riddle for gene editing is to answer fundamental questions about aging, said Omar Abudayyeh, a Harvard Medical School professor.

Go deeper.

🔎 Melanoma cases rise
A map of the United States showing the annual age-adjusted rate of new melanoma cases for 2016-2020. The state with the highest rate is Utah, at 40.8 new cases per 100k people per year. Washington, DC has the lowest rate, at 9.3 cases, followed by Texas at 14.1 cases. The U.S. average is 22.5 cases.

Doctors are diagnosing more people with melanoma, Axios' Carly Mallenbaum reports.

  • Why it matters: Melanoma accounts for only about 1% of skin cancers. But it's responsible for the large majority of skin cancer deaths, according to the American Cancer Society.

ACS estimates that about 100,640 new cases of melanoma skin cancer will be diagnosed in 2024.
