HOUSTON (March17, 2014)

UTHealth oncologist Dr. Sindhu Nair, affiliated with Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, speaks on a recent report that shows cancer is set to top heart disease as the number one killer of Americans in less than two decades. The number of cancer cases each year is growing at an alarming rate. The report from the American Society of Clinical Oncology shows the number of new cancer cases is expected to grow by nearly 45% by the year 2030. That's an increase from 1.6 million cases annual to about 2.3 million.
