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:

  • 1,000 Canadians will be diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma.
  • 130 Canadians will die from Hodgkin lymphoma.
  • 550 men will be diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma and 80 will die from it.
  • 460 women will be diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma and 45 will die from it.
