In 25 years the number of new cancer cases has doubled in the Netherlands, says the IKNL.
Men get cancer more often than women, 52,500 to 49,000. Breast cancer is the most common, with 14,600 cases in 2013, followed by skin cancer by approximately 14,400.
Colon cancer, lung cancer and prostate cancer are relatively common. The chance of getting cancer, acting in accordance with the center slightly as the number of new cases remains almost the same but the population is growing.
The IKNL expects the number of new patients by about 3 percent per year will increase the coming years. This is partly due to the aging population. Life expectancy has increased over the past decade by three years.
As people live longer, the risk of cancer is increasing. In 2012 43.741 people died from cancer, calculated by Statistics Netherlands. They were more than 541 people in 2011. For this figure is that the growing population there has been a decrease in mortality from cancer, especially in men.
