The authors of the report – from the ACS and the National Cancer Institute – define a cancer “survivor” as anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer and is still alive.
That's a bit of a stretch. That would make Walter White a cancer survivor in the first episode. It sounds like what they're really saying is the number of people diagnosed with cancer will be going up in the next 10 years. Something you'd expect with an aging population.

That's what I thought, but then I read the article. "The report says even though the rates of new cancer cases are decreasing, the number of cancer survivors is growing. This is due partly to improved treatments that help people with cancer live longer, and improvements in early detection that allow doctors to find cancer earlier when it is easier to treat."
