Appalachia Continues to Have Higher Cancer Rates


According to researchers at the American Association for Cancer Research, cancer incidence continues to be higher in Appalachia, the U.S. region that stretches from Mississippi to New York.

Influencing factors are believed to be higher rates of tobacco use and poor access to quality healthcare in the region.

The researchers also say that the incidence gap between the Appalachia and non-Appalachia, however, has narrowed except for cancers of the oral cavity and pharynx, larynx, lung and bronchus, and thyroid.
