Statistics by Country for Breast Cancer


advertisement

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Breast Cancer: These statistics are calculated extrapolations of various prevalence or incidence rates against the populations of a particular country or region. The statistics used for prevalence/incidence of Breast Cancer are typically based on US, UK, Canadian or Australian statistics. This extrapolation calculation is automated and does not take into account any genetic, cultural, environmental, social, racial or other differences across the various countries and regions for which the extrapolated Breast Cancer statistics below refer to. As such, these extrapolations may be highly inaccurate (especially for developing or third-world countries) and only give a general indication (or even a meaningless indication) as to the actual prevalence or incidence of Breast Cancer in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Breast Cancer: The word 'prevalence' of Breast Cancer usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Breast Cancer at any given time (i.e. people with Breast Cancer). The term 'incidence' of Breast Cancer means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Breast Cancer diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Breast Cancer). Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.



Incidence (annual) of Breast Cancer: 205,000 annual cases (SEER 2002 estimate); 180,000 annual cases (NCI); only about 1,000 men
Incidence Rate for Breast Cancer: approx 1 in 1,326 or 0.08% or 205,000 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Breast Cancer to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Breast Cancer to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Breast Cancer are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Breast Cancer in any region:
