HEALTH STATUS - Cancer Incidence
Male  |  Female
Hawai`i vs. U.S. Incidence: Between 1980 and 2010, Hawai'i had a lower overall age-adjusted incidence of cancer per 100,000 population than the United States. Between 1980 and 2005, incidence rates increased by 16.3 percent for Hawai'i and 17.9 percent nationally.

Cancer Prevention: It is estimated that 50 percent or more of cancers or more can be prevented through smoking cessation, improved dietary habits, and adopting a healthier, more active lifestyle. The ability to reduce cancer incidence and death rates depends, in part, on the availability of culturally and linguistically appropriate methods of prevention, early detection and treatment, access to state-of-the-art preventive services and treatment, and progress in research.1
