Cancer Home
CDC is a leader in nationwide cancer prevention and control, working with national organizations, state health agencies, and other key groups to develop, implement, and promote effective cancer prevention and control practices.
Breast Cancer
CDC supports cancer surveillance programs, researches factors related to breast cancer risks, screening, diagnosis, and treatment, and provides breast cancer screening to underserved women.
Cancer Survivorship
CDC is working with national, state, and local partners to create and implement successful strategies to help the millions of people in the United States who live with, through, and beyond cancer.
Cervical Cancer
CDC supports activities to reduce the burden of cervical cancer that include screening, tracking, follow-up, case management, partnership and professional development, and public education and outreach.
Colorectal Cancer
CDC promotes colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon and rectum) prevention by building partnerships, encouraging screening, supporting education and training, and conducting surveillance and research.
Gynecologic Cancer
To raise awareness about the five major gynecologic cancers (cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal, and vulvar), CDC provides information and educational materials for women and health care providers.
Health Disparities
CDC promotes health equity among minorities and medically underserved populations by promoting changes in behavior and better access to screening services.
Hematologic (Blood) Cancers
CDC funds efforts to improve the awareness, diagnosis, understanding, and treatment of hematologic cancers (cancers of the blood and bone marrow).
Lung Cancer
CDC has a number of programs for preventing and controlling lung cancer, which kills more people than any other type of cancer. Research continues to look for better ways to prevent and control lung cancer.
Ovarian Cancer
CDC enhances the limited knowledge about ovarian cancer by initiating research projects with partners, colleagues, and national organizations to help identify factors related to early disease detection and treatment, and survivorship.
Prostate Cancer
CDC provides the public, physicians, and policymakers with the information they need to help make informed decisions about the potential risks and benefits of prostate cancer screening and follow-up.
Skin Cancer
CDC provides leadership for nationwide efforts to reduce illness and death caused by skin cancer, the most common form of cancer in the United States.
Uterine Cancer
When uterine cancer is found early, treatment is most effective. The most common sign of uterine cancer is abnormal bleeding.
Vaginal and Vulvar Cancers
Many vaginal and vulvar cancers are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), a very common sexually transmitted infection that also causes cervical cancer.
National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP)
CDC provides access to critical breast and cervical cancer screening services for underserved women in the United States, the District of Columbia, and several U.S. territories and American Indian/Alaska Native organizations.
National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP)
CDC supports Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC)—a collaborative process through which a community and its partners pool resources to promote cancer prevention, improve cancer detection, increase access to health and social services, and reduce the burden of cancer.
National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR)
Data collected by state cancer registries enable public health professionals to understand and address the cancer burden more effectively. CDC provides support for states to maintain registries that provide high-quality data.
