Cancer is considered a leading cause of death. The global cancer is increasing the existing burden equally in both underdeveloped and developed countries. The cancer burden is significantly creating problems for all countries but incidence and mortality rates vary due to their adapted lifestyle, eating habits, and different culture. In many countries including Western countries hold the cancer climbing slop by decreasing the prevalence of known factors, detected at an early stage, and ameliorate the treatment methods. We collected the data by selecting the countries with high income countries (HIC) having a high incidence rate for all sites of cancer (lung, colorectal, breast, and prostate cancer) as compared to some low and middle-income countries (LMICs). Although cancers commonly found in high income countries like lung, breast, and colorectum are emerging with high incidence in LMICs due to the same factors of western countries such as smoking, excess body weight, physical inactivity, and an altered pattern of reproduction. Strick preventive control measures are become mandatory to reduce and arrest the growing burden globally.
