Question description

Submit a four- to seven-page Word document or four- to seven-slide PowerPoint presentation (excluding title and reference pages/slides) that profiles the type of cancer you selected.  Your profile should include an introduction and conclusion, as well as correct APA citations for any resources used.  It must contain a brief synopsis of the type of cancer as well as statistics on gender, age, and race/ethnicity.  

Address the following in your profile:


  • Describe your data and give a brief synopsis of the type of cancer you selected.

  • Give the current survival rates for your selected cancer.

  • Do survival rates for your selected cancer differ by race/ethnicity or gender (or age)?  If so, what are those differences?  

  • How has relative survival (5-year survival) changed over the years? What inferences can you draw from these time trends (or the absence of time trends)?

  • Are there procedures available that can help improve a person’s chance of survival for the cancer you selected?  

  • List at least one risk factor that has been found to be associated with this cancer.

  • Additionally, use the National Cancer Institutes’ State Cancer Profiles interactive tool to determine the prevalence of your selected cancer type across the United States.
