Bladder cancer statistics

To provide the most current cancer statistics, statistical methods are used to estimate the number of new cancer cases and deaths until actual data become available.

Incidence and mortality

Incidence is the total number of new cases of cancer. Mortality is the number of deaths due to cancer.

It is estimated that in 2016:

  • 8,700 Canadians will be diagnosed with bladder cancer.
  • 2,300 Canadians will die from bladder cancer.
  • 6,660 men will be diagnosed with bladder cancer and 1,650 will die from it.
  • 2,100 women will be diagnosed with bladder cancer and 670 will die from it.
