Cancer is a leading cause of death in both more and less economically developed countries; the burden is expected to grow worldwide due to the growth and aging of the population, particularly in less developed countries, in which about 82% of the world's population resides. The adoption of lifestyle behaviors that are known to increase cancer risk, such as smoking, poor diet, physical inactivity, and reproductive changes (including lower parity and later age at first birth), have further increased the cancer burden in less economically developed countries. In this article, we provide an overview of the global cancer burden, including the estimated number of new cancer cases and deaths in 2012 and the incidence and mortality rates by region for selected cancer sites. These statistics are based on GLOBOCAN worldwide estimates of cancer incidence and mortality produced by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) for 2012. 1 We comment on the scale and profiles of cancer worldwide and associated risk factors for a number of common cancers, alongside preventive measures that have the potential to reduce the future cancer burden.
