Small intestine 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 small intestine cancer are from 2010:
- 750 Canadians were diagnosed with small intestine cancer.
- 415 men were diagnosed with small intestine cancer.
- 335 women were diagnosed with small intestine cancer.
The most recent mortality statistics for small intestine cancer are from 2012:
- 231 Canadians died from small intestine cancer.

My favourite thing about Camp Goodtime is being able to hang out with other kids who have survived cancer. They know what is going on in your life and can help you get through it.
Volunteer for Daffodil Month
Volunteers are urgently needed in April. When you volunteer just a few hours of your time during Daffodil Month, you help save lives and support people who are living with cancer now.
