Chronic lymphocytic leukemia statistics
It can take several years to collect and confirm cancer data, so the number of new cancer cases and deaths from recent years may not be available for some time. The most recent data available are provided below.
Incidence and mortality
Incidence is the total number of new cases of cancer. Mortality is the number of deaths due to cancer.
The most recent incidence and mortality statistics for chronic lymphocytic leukemia are from 2013:
- 2,465 Canadians were diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
- 608 Canadians died from chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
- 1,495 men were diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and 396 died from it.
- 965 women were diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and 212 died from it.

Brock has been cancer free for over a decade, thanks to the support we received from the Canadian Cancer Society.
Together we can reduce the burden of cancer
Last year, we only had the resources available to fund 40% of high-priority research projects. Imagine the impact we could have if we were able to fund 100%.
