Cancer is the leading cause of death among Asian Americans. In particular, Asian Americans have the highest rates of liver and stomach cancers. They are nearly three times more likely to develop liver cancer than non-Hispanic whites and twice as likely to develop stomach cancer. Asian Americans account for approximately half of the chronic hepatitis B cases (a precursor to liver disease and cancer) in the United States.
