Dear Mumsy, thank you for your enquiry. To obtain South African cancer statistics, visit the website of the South African National Cancer Registry. Unfortunately the latest cancer statistics that are available for South Africa are those of 2012 and it only includes histologically diagnosed cancer cases. The National Department of Health recently admitted in a document 'Breast Cancer Prevention and Control Policy' released on 25 August 2017, that the South African Cancer Registry is currently not up to date.
