Answer

The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that 9110 new cases of CML will be diagnosed in 2021, 5150 in males and 3960 in females. The ACS estimates that 1220 deaths from CML will occur in 2021, 680 in males and 540 in females. [11] Age-adjusted rates for new cases of CML did not change significantly over 2009–2018, but age-adjusted death rates fell on average 1.0% each year over 2009–2018. [12]
