Uterine cancer statistics

To provide the most current cancer statistics, researchers use statistical methods 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 2015:

  • 6,300 Canadian women will be diagnosed with uterine cancer.
  • 1,050 will die from uterine cancer in Canada.

Chances (probability) of developing or dying from uterine cancer

Based on 2010 estimates, about 1 in 36 Canadian women is expected to develop uterine cancer during her lifetime and 1 in 156 will die from it.
