WELCOME TO THE CENTER FOR CANCER
PREVENTION AND CONTROL
year, more than 31,000 Marylanders are diagnosed with invasive cancer, and more
than 10,000 Marylanders die due to cancer. While the death rate from cancer in
the United States has steadily declined since its peak in 1991, cancer
continues to be the second leading cause of death in the United States and in
Maryland, behind heart disease.
Center for Cancer Prevention and Control is dedicated to reducing the burden of
cancer in Maryland.
