Stomach 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:
- 3,400 Canadians will be diagnosed with stomach cancer.
- 2,000 Canadians will die from stomach cancer.
- 2,200 men will be diagnosed with stomach cancer and 1,250 will die from it.
- 1,300 women will be diagnosed with stomach cancer and 780 will die from it.

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.
