Chronic myelogenous 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 myelogenous leukemia are from 2013:
- 675 Canadians were diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia.
- 119 Canadians died from chronic myelogenous leukemia.
- 410 men were diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia and 72 died from it.
- 265 women were diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia and 47 died from it.

Research at the Canadian Centre for Applied Research in Cancer Control led to a new standard in leukemia testing.
