According to 2010 data the US Census Bureau, 50.5 million Americans, or 16% of the total US population, identified themselves as Hispanic or Latino. Most cancer data in the US are reported for Hispanics as an aggregate group, which masks important differences that exist between Hispanic sub-populations according to country of origin. For example, a study of Hispanic adults in Florida found that the age-adjusted cancer death rate in Cuban men (327.5 per 100,000) was twice that in Mexican men (163.4 per 100,000).

Overall, about 1 in 2 Hispanic men and 1 in 3 Hispanic women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. The lifetime probability of dying from cancer is 1 in 5 for Hispanic men and 1 in 6 for Hispanic women. Cancer is the leading cause of death among Hispanics, accounting for 21% of deaths overall and 15% of deaths in children.

About 53,600 new cancer cases in men and 59,200 cases in women were expected to be diagnosed among Hispanics in 2012. Prostate cancer was expected to be the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and breast cancer the most common in women. Cancers of the colorectum and lung will be the second- and third-most commonly diagnosed cancers in Hispanic men, while among women, cancers of the colorectum and thyroid will be second and third, respectively.
