Lung Cancer Awareness runs all throughout November as awareness is brought up throughout all of the provinces in Canada.

Lung cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Canada. It is the leading cause of death from cancer for both men and women in Canada. According to the Canadian Cancer Society, 78 Canadians are diagnosed with the horrible disease each day of the calendar year.

By the end of 2017, Canadians are on pace to have 28,600 people diagnosed with lung cancer. This represents 14% of all new cancer cases in 2017. 21,100 Canadians will die from lung cancer. This represents 26% of all cancer deaths in 2017.

About 80% of lung cancer deaths are caused by smoking, and many others are caused by exposure to secondhand smoke.

Lung cancer is more common with men compared to women.

It is estimated that about 1 in 11 Canadian men will develop lung cancer during his lifetime and one in 14 will die from it.

It is estimated that about 1 in 14 Canadian women will develop lung cancer during her lifetime and one in 17 will die from it.

Statistics are from the Canadian Cancer Society.
