She also explained that younger black women are more likely to have an aggressive form of breast cancer known as triple negative, a much more hard to treat subtype of cancer that develops almost two times as often in black women.

The 1.7 percent decrease means that almost 2.4 million fewer people died of the disease in that period.

According to the report, men a slightly more likely to develop a form - most commonly, prostate, lung and colorectal - of cancer than women. Overall, the cancer death rate in 2015 was 14 percent higher for non-Hispanic blacks than for non-Hispanic whites, down from a peak of 33 percent in 1993.

"Advancing the fight against cancer for all citizens requires broader application of existing cancer control knowledge, including smoking cessation and the increased uptake of cancer-preventing cervical and colorectal cancer screening and HPV vaccination, across all segments of the population, with an emphasis on disadvantaged groups", researchers conclude in the report.

Yet, as rates of liver cancer diagnoses stabilize in men, they continue to climb quickly for women.

Cancer remains the number two cause of death in America, where it continues to cause more than 600,000 deaths annually.

Liver cancer incidence continued to rise in women and appeared to plateau in men. Mortality rates remain 31 percent higher in blacks than in whites under 65. Cancer death rates were not statistically different by race in Kentucky and West Virginia, for example, but were the highest of all states for whites.

In 2018, 1,735,350 new cancer cases and 609,640 cancer deaths are projected to occur in the USA, the report found.

However, he noted that "tobacco remains by far the leading cause of cancer deaths today, responsible for almost three in 10 cancer deaths".

The overall estimate of 1,735,350 cases for 2018 equals more than 4,700 new cancer diagnoses each day. They also can be oversensitive to sudden or large changes in observed data, and may be adjusted as modeling techniques and cancer surveillance improve.
