Testicular 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.
An estimated 1,100 Canadian men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2016. An estimated 40 will die from the disease.

I’m extremely grateful to the Canadian Cancer Society for funding my research with an Innovation Grant.
Establishing a national caregivers strategy
The Canadian Cancer Society is actively lobbying the federal government to establish a national caregivers strategy to ensure there is more financial support for this important group of people.
