Cancer is predicted to be an increasingly important cause of morbidity and mortality in the next few decades, in all regions of the world. Cancer rates have been substantially higher in high income Western countries in comparison to East-Asia and Africa. Migration studies have found that the rates of many types of cancers change when people move, especially if they move from low-incidence to high-incidence countries. The U.S. population is expected to grow from 305 million in 2010 to 365 million in 2030. The total number of cancer diagnoses per year will increase from 1.6 million in 2010 to 2.3 million in 2030. In 2030, 70% of cancers will be diagnosed in the elderly (Ferlay J et al.2010, Samera Azeem ,e-tal 2014, Nathan, et al., 2013).
