Penile cancer 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 statistics for penile cancer are from 2013:
- 215 Canadian men were diagnosed with penile cancer.
The most recent mortality statistics for penile cancer are from 2012:
- 43 Canadian men died from penile cancer.
