Uterine 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 6,600 Canadian women will be diagnosed with uterine cancer in 2016. An estimated 1,100 will die from the disease.
