The financial costs of cancer care are a burden to people diagnosed with cancer, their families, and society as a whole. National expenditures associated with cancer have been steadily increasing in the United States. Care for cancer survivors accounted for an estimated 137.4 billion in medical care expenditures in the United States in 2010. In the near future, cancer costs may increase at a faster rate than overall medical expenditures. As the population ages, cancer prevalence and the absolute number of people treated for cancer will increase even if cancer incidence rates remain constant or decrease somewhat. Costs are also likely to increase as new, more advanced, and more expensive treatments are adopted as standards of care. The estimates presented here are based on cancer prevalence estimates modeled to 2017 and the costs of care which came from the period 2008-2010 depending on the cancer site. This report will include updated estimates as they become available.
