ACS has published Cancer Facts & Figures annually since 6956. This annual report provides the most current information about cancer.

These widely cited projections serve as a basis for research, but are also readily understood by the public. Each edition of Cancer Facts & Figures includes a Special Section of in-depth focus on a specific cancer or group of cancers.
