Cancer is a systemic disease with tumors as a local manifestation of the disease. Once cancer occurs in a person, cancerous cells will be found in the body. Surgical removal of tumors in no way implies that one is cured of cancer. For example, breast cancer can relapse even if the original tumors were removed.Like hypertension and diabetes, cancer is a chronic disease. The disease may take a few years to manifest itself - from its occurrence until the emergence of tumors. In some cases, cancer cells may exist in a stage of ....

Canada’s Cancer Statistics: -Overall Cancer Incidence Continues to Increase and Lung Cancer Incidence still Ranks the No. 1
Size: S / L

As indicated in the latest 2017 Canada’s Cancer Statistics released by Canadian Cancer Society (CCS), Canadians has seen an increased risk of cancer incidence and almost 1/2 Canadian citizens might develop cancer in a lifetime. It is statistically estimated that about 80,800 people would have died of cancer by 2017.

According to the 2016 Canada’s Cancer Statistics, two out of five (40%) Canadians are likely to suffer from cancer, 45% for male and 42% for female. However, as showed in the 2017 Canada’s Cancer Statistics, Canadians has seen an increased risk of cancer incidence and nearly one in two Canadian citizens might develop cancer in a lifetime, 49% for female and 45% for female.


CCS notes that although all data information of these two years’ Statistics were collected from Public Health Agency of Canada and Statistics Canada, the 2017 Statistics, however, would provide more accurate figures by using the latest and more scientific research methods which resembles what developed countries like USA and UK are adopting currently.



Canadians’ Risk of Cancer Increase with Age


The latest report of CCS has shown that Canadians are suffering from higher risk of cancer with increase of age. It is estimated that nearly 90% of 206,200 Canadian cancer patients are over 50 years old and 45% are at 70 years or more. With increasingly longer lifespan of Canadians, there would inevitably be more and more senile Canadians suffering from cancer.


According to the previous two years’ data, there have been 196,900 people who are diagnosed with cancer by 2015 and 202,400 by 2016. At such a speed, therefore, Canada’s cancer patients might have amounted to 277,000 by 2030 as estimated.



Four Leading Cancers in Canada


As shown in relevant reports, lung cancer, breast cancer, colorectal cancer and prostate cancer are four leading cancers in Canada, and there would have been 21,100 people dying of lung cancer by 2017 as predicted, which would go beyond the total death toll of other three cancer types (19,200).


It is believed that 2017’s situation would be similar to that of 2016 when lung cancer, rectal cancer, breast cancer and pancreatic cancer were four major causes of death of Canada’s cancer patients, and lung cancer ranks No.1 among all cancer types, accounting for 1/4 of all cancer-related death tolls.

As predicted by CCS, there would see a surge of prostate cancer incidence in the following 14 years since the longer the males’ lifespan is the higher the risk they would bear in prostate cancer; while lung cancer patients will reduce with more and more Canadians joining in the “stop smoking campaign”. It is therefore expected that the “Top Four” cancers might have changed to prostate cancer, rectum cancer, lung cancer and breast cancer by 2030 and those four cancer patients would take up over 1/2 of total number of cancer patients.


Improved survival rate of cancer

With implementation of “Cancer Prevention Program”, popularization of tumor early detection and advancement of therapeutic approaches, Canadians’ overall survival rate of cancer has dramatically improved, from around 25% in 1940’s up to 60% as yet.


It is worth noting that there has been a great advancement in treatment rate and curative effect of some cancer types like thyroid cancer and testis cancer whose five-year survival rate succeeds in exceeding 90%. And with development of early detection and early treatment of cancer, it is also possible to make for greater improvement in survival rate and treatment rate of patients with breast cancer, colorectal cancer and cervix cancer. 


There is evidence that pancreas cancer serves as the most intractable cancer type with lowest survival rate. It is statistically shown that the current survival rate of pancreas cancer of Canada merely account for around 8%. For stagnant research progress of pancreatic cancer and limited therapeutic approaches, it is believed that this type of cancer would soon become the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related death in Canada.


Dr. Jolie Ringash, an oncologist of Princess Margaret Cancer Centre pointed out that the majority of pancreatic cancer patients are already at advanced stage upon the first diagnosis, leaving almost no chance of effective treatment. The main reason for hard early detection is that pancreatic cancer usually develops neither abdominal pain nor back pain in the early-to-middle stage.


Six Ways for Cancer Prevention


CCS appeals to the following six ways of cancer prevention for Canadians:


  1. No smoking;


  1. Less alcohol;


  1. Insist on a healthy life style;


  1. Keep out of long-time blazing sunlight;


  1. Timely injection of HPV and hepatitis vaccine;


  1. Avoid exposure to environmental cancerogenic substances.
