Please note: The projected numbers of new cancer cases and deaths in should not be compared with previous years to track cancer trends because they are model-based and vary from year to year for reasons other than changes in cancer occurrence. Age-standardized incidence and death rates should be used to measure cancer trends. This year's special section profiles cancer in adults ages 85 and older, sometimes referred to as the oldest old, including data on incidence, mortality, survival, and treatment and discusses some of the unique challenges affecting these patients. It is intended to inform anyone interested in learning more about cancers in the oldest old, including policy makers, researchers, clinicians, cancer control advocates, patients, and caregivers. In , there will be approximately , cancer cases diagnosed and about , cancer deaths among the oldest old in the US. This supplemental data set can be used as a resource for cancer control planning at the state level, as well as to address questions from the media or American Cancer Society ACS constituents.

To describe the profile of breast cancer in the patients attending the radiation therapy unit of Yaounde General Hospital. From to , we conducted a descriptive retrospective study based on the register and medical records of patients. During the study period, breast cancer patients were recorded of which 0. Age range was 18 to 82 years, with a mean of Out of these,
Length of survival of cancer patients is an important indicator for knowing the outcome of treatment in any study. Epidemiological features and biological profile of breast cancer appear to be different in developing countries as compared to Western countries. Knowing the factors that influence survival rates among women with breast cancer may help define early detection actions, and improve treatment and care proposals in all the areas of health.
