Cancer is known to be the leading cause of death in Canada and is responsible for 30% of all deaths. Cancer statistics tell us the number of diagnosis and deaths caused by cancer each year. Through these statistics, we can see trends in new cancer cases and cancer deaths. It also tells us the likelihood of survival and the percentage of people alive years after their diagnosis.
An estimated 206,200 new cases and 80,800 deaths due to cancer is said to occur in Canada alone in 2017. Furthermore, every 1 in 2 women in Canada is bound to get breast cancer. That is a ratio of 50% of women!
