Although pancreatic cancer represents only 3.2% of all new cancer cases in the United States, it is now the third leading cause of cancer-related death.1,2 An estimated 45,750 Americans will die of pancreatic cancer in 2019, and there will be an estimated 56,770 new cases of the disease diagnosed in the same year.1 Given the poor prognosis associated with this type of cancer, researchers are striving to gain a better understanding of the biology of the disease, and to develop more effective treatments. In addition, advocacy groups are working to raise awareness about the disease and improve quality of life. Presented here are a few statistics about pancreatic cancer.
Ovarian cancer is a very difficult disease to diagnose and is the most lethal gynecologic malignancy, being the fifth leading cause of cancer death in women in the United States. A woman’s risk for developing ovarian cancer in her lifetime is approximately 1 in 78, and her lifetime risk for dying of the disease is approximately 1 in 108. The disease was previously thought to begin in the ovaries, but recent research suggests that many ovarian cancers may actually start in the distal end of the fallopian tubes. The following provides key statistics and other helpful information regarding ovarian cancer.
Primary bone cancer is rare, accounting for <0.2% of all new cancers diagnosed in the United States.
Ovarian cancer affects the glands found in women that produce eggs, known as ova, for reproduction. The American Cancer Society estimates that 22,240 women will be diagnosed with new cases of ovarian cancer in 2018, and 14,070 women will die from the disease during the same year.

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is far less predictable than Hodgkin lymphoma, and is more likely to spread to parts of the body outside of the lymphatic system.

Although it is very curable when found and treated early on, early-stage cervical cancer may not cause any noticeable signs or symptoms. In advanced stages, however, the disease may cause vaginal bleeding or discharge that is abnormal for the patient.1

Peripheral neuropathy is the result of damage to the peripheral nervous system, the complex network of nerves that transmits messages between the brain and other parts of the body. Such damage can cause impaired movement, loss of sensation in the arms and legs, numbness, tingling, and pain.
Each year, >200,000 individuals in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. Primary brain tumors comprise approximately 40,000 of these diagnoses.
Thyroid cancer represents only 3.8% of new cancer cases annually in the United States, but occurs approximately 3 times as often in women as in men.
Leukemia is the most common cancer in children and adolescents and represents almost 1 of 3 cancers found in these populations.
