Future cancer cases

Doctors are warning of a dramatic increase in the number of cancer cases among the elderly and minorities within the next two decades.

While the population is expected to expand by 19-percent by 2030, the number of newly-diagnosed cancer cases is predicted to increase by 45-percent.

New research indicates that the number of new cancer cases will double for minorities, with Hispanics and Asian-Americans particularly affected.
