The american cancer society is a likely place/site to start such a search. One of its primary functions is to keep track of the incidence of all kinds of cancer. In fact, on its website by the "how can we help you?" section is a small area called "frequently searched" that has as a sub-topic "cancer statistics". Otherwise, a search can likely get you a good start on the information.

The United States department of labor (dol) has data on this and also the US Public Health service. Check in with the US .gov for these statistics.
