Abstract: This study aims to show the influence of statistical studies on the establishment of the fight against cancer in Portugal. Cancer visibility became more important due to statistic analyses, which took the form of reports in Portugal and were not always complete and frequently distant from reality. Although the impact of these reports was not felt immediately, they led over the medium-term to the establishment of the Portuguese Institute of Oncology, created in 1923 based on international models. New data obtained by the Institute allowed the correction of important errors in relation to the true presence of cancer in Portuguese health statistics in the 1930.
