Statistics About Anal Cancer

Some people use statistics to try to figure out their chances of getting cancer or of being cured. It is important to remember that this data shows what happens with large groups of people. Because no two people are alike, this information can’t be used to know or predict what will happen to you.

These are 2013 statistics from the American Cancer Society about anal cancer:

  • Anal cancer is not very common. Approximately 7,000 people in the United States will be told they have anal cancer this year.

  • This cancer is more common in women than in men.

  • About 900 people will die of anal cancer this year.
