The number of cancer-related deaths continues to decline, according to a new report out by the American Cancer Society.

Death rates have fallen for lung, colon, breast, and prostate cancer. The biggest decline for men is in lung cancer deaths and for women, breast cancer.

Overall the reduction in cancer deaths during the past decade translates into more than a million lives saved.

The society said new cases of seven less-common cancers rose in the past decade.

This year, the cancer group projects 1,638,910 people will be newly diagnosed with cancer and 577,190 people will die from the disease.
