  1. 57,740 New Cancer Cases Among AANHPIs Projected in 2016

    The American Cancer Society recently released a study on cancer incidence among Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPIs). Here are some key findings from the report:

    • Cancer is the leading cause of death among Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders.
    • Among AANHPIs in 2016, there will be an estimated 57,740 new cancer cases and 16,910 cancer deaths.
    • The most common cancer among AANHPI males is prostate (18%) and females is breast (34%).
    • AANHPIs have 30% to 40% lower overall incidence and mortality rates than non-Hispanic whites.
    • The male-to-female incidence rate ratio among AANHPIs declined from 1.43 in 1992 to 1.04 in 2012.
    • Cancer incidence in Samoan men (526.5/100,000) is more than 2x that in Asian Indian/Pakistani men.
