Cancer By The Numbers •  Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the US, exceeded only by heart disease, accounting for 1 of every 4 deaths. •  About 77% of all cancers are diagnosed in persons 55 years of age or older. •  About 5% of all cancers are strongly hereditary. •  Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in both men and women. Tobacco use accounts for at least 87% of lung cancer deaths and 30% of all cancer deaths. 529 S. Jackson St., Louisville, KY 40202 (502) 217-8200 www.louisvilleck.com
