With around 475,000 new diagnoses per year, cancer is one of the most common diseases in Germany. As is the case with many ailments, socioeconomic status is correlated with cancer's incidence as well as with its prognosis. Unlike most other diseases, some types of cancer have a positive correlation with socioeconomic position, meaning that with increasing social status the incidence of these cancers also increases. However, regarding the prognosis in such cases, the correlation remains negative.
