Queensland Cancer Statistics Online (QCSOL) provides the most recent incidence, survival, mortality and prevalence data by gender (males, females and persons) for 22 of the most common cancers in Queensland.

Navigation through QCSOL is via the tabs above the charts and the cancer types down the left of the page. Initially select a tab, then click on the cancer type desired. Additional selections are available for survival (gender) and prevalence (time interval).

Tabular versions of the data for each cancer are available in an excel workbook and can be downloaded from the downloads tab.

Although graphs often present data for males and females only, data for persons are also provided in the associated downloadable excel workbooks.
