The National Cancer Institute projects that the proportion of adult persons with HIV in the US aged 65 years and older will increase from 8.5% to 21.4% in 2030. There will be a decrease in age-specific cancer rates for Kaposi sarcoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, cervical cancer, lung cancer, Hodgkin lymphoma and other cancer types combined through 2030. However, absolute numbers of lung cancer will increase. Also, prostate cancer rates and numbers are projected to increase during this time period. Although a decrease is projected for many cancers, there is still a need for cancer prevention, screening and treatment efforts in this aging population.In particular more attention to prostate cancer screening and lung cancer prevention in older adults with HIV/AIDS is indicated.
