In the first of a two-part series, we'll delve into the most prevalent cancers in New Hampshire - bladder, breast and lung.  We'll also examine who appears to be most susceptible to these cancers and how genetics, lifestyle, or environmental causes might be contributing factors in the incidence of cancer in the state.


  • Lance Boucher, Director of Public Policy for the American Lung Association in New Hampshire. 
  • Margaret Karagas, Chair of the Department of Epidemiology at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College.
  • Judy Rees, Director of the New Hampshire Cancer Registry.
  • Thomas Sherman, State Representative for Rye and New Castle, and a gastroenterologist with Exeter Hospital's Center for Cancer Care.
