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 2016:
- 8,000 Canadians will be diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
- 2,700 Canadians will die from non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
- 4,400 men will be diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and 1,500 will die from it.
- 3,600 women will be diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and 1,200 will die from it.

Volunteering with the Canadian Cancer Society opened my eyes to just how much work they do for people fighting cancer.
Support from someone who has ‘been there’
The Canadian Cancer Society’s peer support program is a telephone support service that matches cancer patients and their caregivers with specially trained volunteers.
