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.
