Florida Cancer Connect

November 30, 2023

Florida Cancer Connect is a centralized resource hub for information on cancer treatment, caregiver tools, and stories from brave Floridians who have fought this disease on one centralized website. Use this tool to access a trusted information from local medical practitioners to help you and your family make informed decisions when it matters most. 

Since 2017, these top five cancers have accounted for just over half of all cancer diagnoses (50.3%) in Florida. 

  • In females: the top five cancers were breast, lung and bronchus, colorectal, Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and melanoma.
  • In males: the top five cancers were prostate, lung and bronchus, colorectal, melanoma, and bladder.

While there has been much progress in cancer prevention, screening, and treatment, Florida continues to improve our understanding and response to cancer. Data are the foundation of Florida’s steps forward to stop cancer before it’s too late. 

Florida Cancer Connect provides Floridians with information on cancer care, detection, prevention, research, and treatment. This hub highlights various tools to fight this battle including nationwide statistics, prevention materials, and event opportunities to bring greater awareness to cancer in the state of Florida and beyond. 

Learn more about Cancer Connect and the Collaborative, working together to analyze and rethink Florida’s approach to combatting cancer.
