Melanoma and other skin cancers on the rise in Canada
Canadian Cancer Society releases 2014 edition of Canadian Cancer Statistics
The 2014 edition of Canadian Cancer Statistics, released May 28 by the Canadian Cancer Society, provides updated estimates of the state of cancer in Canada with a special focus on skin cancer. Skin cancer is the most common cancer and one of the fastest rising types of cancer in Canada.

While the survival rate for skin cancer is relatively high, Canadian Cancer Statistics estimates that 6,500 new cases of malignant melanoma and 76,100 cases of non-melanoma skin cancers will be diagnosed in 2014. Together, melanoma and other skin cancers will account for nearly the same number of new cancer cases as lung, breast, colorectal and prostate cancers combined.

The 2014 statistics publication estimates that 191,300 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in Canada this year, not including 76,100 cases of non-melanoma skin cancer. Read Canadian Cancer Statistics 2014.
