Pancreatic cancer 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:
- 5,200 Canadians will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
- 4,700 Canadians will die from pancreatic cancer.
- 2,600 men will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and 2,400 will die from it.
- 2,600 women will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and 2,400 will die from it.

Even though we are high school students, we were able to raise so much money for the Canadian Cancer Society. It just goes to show what can happen when a small group of people come together for a great cause.
Funding lifesaving clinical trials
The Canadian Cancer Society is funding lifesaving clinical trials that give people with cancer access to the newest types of treatment.
