Sum up:

One of the most obvious changes in the latest global cancer burden data in 2020 is the rapid increase in the number of new cases of breast cancer, which has replaced lung cancer as the world’s largest cancer. The number of breast cancer cases has increased. One of the fundamental reasons is the risk of breast cancer. Constant changes, such as postponed births and fewer births, are most obvious in countries undergoing social and economic transformation. Overweight and obesity, as well as lack of exercise, are also reasons for the increase in breast cancer incidence worldwide.

Globally, due to the increasing aging of the population, it is estimated that the burden of cancer will increase by 50% in 2040 compared to 2020, and the number of new cancer cases will reach nearly 30 million by then. This is most noticeable in countries undergoing social and economic transition.

The increase in the cancer burden coincides with changes in common cancer types. Many countries are experiencing a significant increase in the prevalence of known cancer risk factors that are currently prevalent in high-income industrialized countries, including smoking, unhealthy diets, obesity epidemics, and lack of exercise.

Cancer prevention and treatment interventions need to be incorporated into national health plans. This is a key means to reduce the future global cancer burden and narrow the widening gap between countries in transition and those in transition.
