The Cost of Cancer Care

Studies that focus on long-term costs of cancer care at the individual patient level are more useful as inputs to cost-effectiveness studies or to estimate capitation payments for cancer cases.

See our bibliography of publications containing data on the cost of cancer care.

The Cancer Prevalence & Cost of Care Projections Web site shows data for cancer prevalence estimated and projected by tumor site through 2020. The site also shows national expenditures for cancer care projected through 2020.
