SUPPORT CANADIANS LIVING WITH CANCER
Esophageal 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:
- 2,300 Canadians will be diagnosed with esophageal cancer.
- 2,100 Canadians will die from esophageal cancer.
- 1,800 men will be diagnosed with esophageal cancer and 1,600 will die from it.
- 530 women will be diagnosed with esophageal cancer and 460 will die from it.

Even though we are high school students, we were able to raise so much money for the Canadian Cancer Society. It just goes to show what can happen when a small group of people come together for a great cause.
