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 2017:

  • 990 Canadians will be diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma.
  • 140 Canadians will die from Hodgkin lymphoma.
  • 570 men will be diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma and 85 will die from it.
  • 430 women will be diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma and 60 will die from it.
