Non-Hodgkin lymphoma 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:
- 8,300 Canadians will be diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
- 2,700 Canadians will die from non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
- 4,600 men will be diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and 1,500 will die from it.
- 3,700 women will be diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and 1,200 will die from it.

It was very important that the fundraiser be in honour of my uncle, because it’s a great way to show our support for him.
Great progress has been made
Some cancers, such as thyroid and testicular, have survival rates of over 90%. Other cancers, such as pancreatic, brain and esophageal, continue to have very low survival rates.
