Cancer statistics

Use the links on this page to explore a wide range of information about cancer.

World Cancer Research Fund International's cancer facts and figures page provides information on the world's most common cancers, data on specific cancers and our estimates of how many cancer cases could be prevented through lifestyle changes

In response to frequent requests for up-to-the-minute statistical cancer information, we also provide links to cancer statistics from the Hong Kong Cancer Registry, the International Agency for Research on Cancer and the World Health Organization (WHO).

These accredited statistical resources relate to international cancer mortality and incidence. National figures may vary and therefore data interpretation instructions from each information provider should be read carefully to assist interpretation.
