Question  What were trends in cigarette smoking cessation rates among US adult cancer survivors from 2000 to 2017?

Findings  In this serial cross-sectional study that included 381 989 adults, the age-adjusted prevalence of current cigarette smokers at the time of first cancer diagnosis was 24.25% among cancer survivors diagnosed between 2000-2017. Over the study period, the probability of quitting cigarette smoking after cancer diagnosis statistically significantly increased with the year of cancer diagnosis.

Meaning  In the US adult population of cancer survivors, upward trends in cigarette smoking cessation were observed from 2000 to 2017; however, the prevalence of smoking remained high among this population.
