Kidney 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 2017:
- 6,600 Canadians will be diagnosed with kidney cancer.
- 1,900 Canadians will die from kidney cancer.
- 4,200 men will be diagnosed with kidney cancer and 1,200 will die from it.
- 2,400 women will be diagnosed with kidney cancer and 670 will die from it.
