Care for the 15 most prevalent types of cancer in the United States cost approximately $156.2 billion in 2018, a new study finds. Drugs for breast, lung, lymphoma and colorectal cancers incurred the highest costs.
“Cancer is … actually overtaking heart disease as the leading cause of death in the U.S. over the past few years,” said researcher Dr. Nicolas Zaorsky of the Penn State College of Medicine.
To reduce cancer risk, MedBen WellLiving emphasizes regular screenings and lifestyle changes as essential elements of preventive care.
