In the past year, the rates of people with sexually transmitted diseases in the U.S. have increased dramatically, according to the most recent 2014 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Despite having been on the decline for years, the number of cases of chlamydia and gonorrhea rose from 2013 to 2014, and cases of syphilis rose by 15.1% year over year.

Though these increases are troubling, they aren’t the only disease rates that have seen growth in the last couple of years. Using data from the CDC, HealthGrove identified 14 diseases that have risen in the U.S. in the past decade.
