Emma Contreras Mrs. Sahagun Algebra II P.2 04 May 2012 Expected Cancer Cases Cancer is the leading cause of death in economically developed countries and the second leading cause of death in developing countries. Cancer is defined as the unwanted growth of cells in any part of the body. One of the biggest causes that can result in the development of various types of cancer is smoking. Cancer causes about 550,000 deaths a year. Many believe that cancer is all the same, but that is not true. There are about one hundred different types of cancer that grow in humans. Some of the most common cases are skin cancer, breast cancer, and cervical cancer. Between the years of 2002 and 2010, new cancer rates continued to increase. The numbers of people diagnosed with cancer will not decrease until we find a cure for this monstrous disease. Until there is a way to stop cancer, people and families will continue to be affected. Because cancer rates were expected to increase at approximately 2.75 percent a year, the model that best represents this devastating increase is y=0.0275x+1.26. In 2002 scientists estimated about 1,284,900 new cancer cases in the United States alone (NCBI). Within one year they anticipated an additional 1,334,100 new cases (NCBI). If you substitute these numbers into the model, you will see that the calculations are correct and efficient. The equation y=0.0275x+1.26 best represents the data of expected cancer rates between the years of 2002 and 2010 because it can predict the number of cases in any year. If doctors never find a cure for cancer many predictions can be made for the future. In order to make predictions for the future you need to know all of the statistics and with those predictions you can also encounter various consequences. Let’s say that someone wanted to predict how many new cancer cases would come in the year 2024. All you would have to do is substitute 23 for x into the equation, y=0.0275x+1.26. The expected amount of cases in 2024 is 1,892,500. If you were to predict cases in 2045 the total number would be approximately 2,470,000. These calculations also can lead to consequences. If you predict the wrong number of cases it increases the chance of stress and worry for doctors and people. Current data trends and predictions can also affect the events that occur in the future. Cancer incidence rates have been reported to be increasing in the United States, although trends vary according to form of cancer (NCI). Current activity to prevent cancer has an effect on predictions because of a cure. If doctors were to create a cure for cancer, the predictions and new cases would decrease drastically. There would also be less deaths. Chemotherapy is another example…

Prostate and Endometrial Cancer
Prostate cancer is a cancer that forms in the tissues of the prostate, the gland of the male reproductive system, which is found below the bladder and in front of the rectum. This cancer usually occurs in older men. In the United States there are estimated 241,740 new cases and 28,170 deaths in 2012.

rehabilitation of patients presenting with head and neck cancer.
In the Western World cancer is the second highest cause of death after coronary heart disease. Head and neck cancer is a relatively rare type of cancer compared to other types, the most common being lung, prostate and breast. Oral cancer makes up only 3-5% of all cancers, but still affects a significant number of people every year. In the UK there are about 13,000 new cases of cancer in the head and neck region per year. Approximately…
Liver cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths worldwide. It accounts for more than 600,000 deaths each year. Most people that are diagnosed with liver cancer are men 45 years or older. The majority of the time when cancer is found in the liver, it originated elsewhere in the body. The only time cancer found in the liver is called “liver cancer” is when the cancer originated in the liver. (American, 2014)

Breast cancer’s full name is malignant breast neoplasm. Breast cancer is a common cancer among women, occurs rarely in men, and is not a threat to children. It is a cancer that starts in the tissue of the breast. Breast cancer is the result of abnormal cell growth within the breast.
There are two main types of breast cancer, which are ductal carcinoma and lobular carcinoma. Ductal carcinoma breast cancer starts in the tubes that move milk from the breast to the nipple. Lobular carcinoma…

Nowadays cancer is leading cause of death which accounting for approximately 7.6 million people died worldwide each year and these numbers are projected to continue increasing. In 1971, the war on cancer was declared by American president Nixon and it refers to the effort to search a treatment or cure for cancer by rising the understanding of cancer biology science and developing more efficient treatments. Many people think that we are actually winning the war on cancer. However, the others have…
