Cancer statistics

Worldwide cancer statistics are available from sources such as the World Health Organization.

In response to frequent requests for up-to-the-minute statistical cancer information, we have provided links to a comprehensive range of worldwide cancer statistics from sources such as 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.
