In brief: Many are prevalent.

There are many forms of cancer prevalent in north america.
Prostate is most common in men followed by lung and colon, while breast seems to be number one in women closely followed by lung and colon. Because lung and colon are seen commonly in men and women, lung is the most common/prevalent, followed by colorectal cancer. With the fall of smoking, lung is on the decrease in the United States.
