Non-melanoma skin cancer statistics
Non-melanoma skin cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in Canadians. But specific cancer statistics for non-melanoma skin cancer are not reported.
Most cancer registries in Canada do not collect information about non-melanoma skin cancers. These cancers are difficult to keep track of. The information often doesn’t get reported because non-melanoma skin cancer is usually diagnosed and treated easily in a doctor’s office.
Research at the Canadian Centre for Applied Research in Cancer Control led to a new standard in leukemia testing.
