Know Your Chances

The Know Your Chances website presents interactive risk charts to put probabilities (risk) of dying from cancer and other diseases in context. Risk charts help people to understand their chance of dying of cancer by showing the magnitude of the risk and how it compares with the risk of dying from other diseases over specific time frames.

The site provides:

  • Big Picture Charts - Single-page charts with the 10-year chances (risk) of dying from preselected causes.
  • Custom Charts - Present the risk of death for selected causes and in the time frame you choose.
  • Your Chances - See changes over time for the most common causes of death based on age, race and sex.
  • Special Cancer Tables - Compare the risk of diagnosis and death for specific cancers.
