In 2017, nearly 400,000 new cases of cancer were diagnosed in France, according to projections of incidence and mortality by cancer established twice a year by Santé Publique France. These new cases would affect men more (54%) than women (46%).

Among men, the most common cancers remain prostate cancer (48,400 new cases estimated in 2013, no projection possible for 2017), followed by lung cancer  (32,300 new cases in 2017) and colorectal cancer (24,000 new cases). case). In women, the most common cancer is breast cancer (59,000 new cases), with colorectal cancer and lung cancer.

Public Health France estimates the number of cancer deaths at 150,000 in 2017 (84,000 deaths among men and 66,000 deaths among women). The most lethal cancer in men remains lung cancer (20,800 deaths). The cancer of the colon-rectum is responsible for 9,300 deaths and that of the prostate of 8,200 deaths. For women, breast cancer remains the most deadly (11,900 deaths). According to the agency’s projections, lung cancer is likely to become the deadliest cancer in the female population in the near future (10,200 deaths in 2017, which is constantly increasing).

However, these figures are only projections and not statistics. The Public Health Agency France recalls that they ” should not be interpreted as an observed reality” and adds that they “are only the reflection of the hypotheses retained and can not, therefore, be used to reconstruct trends only the estimation and trend work, done every 5 years, allows it “ . The next ones will be published in 2019.
