The report indicates the number of cancer-related deaths fell by 26 percent during a 14-year period ending in 2015.
The improvement is being attributed to advances in research, treatments and a dramatic decrease in smoking.
The report also notes that outcomes vary greatly between different races, income levels and genders.
