Statistics by Country for Melanoma


advertisement

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Melanoma: 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 Melanoma 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 Melanoma 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 Melanoma in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Melanoma: The word 'prevalence' of Melanoma usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Melanoma at any given time (i.e. people with Melanoma). The term 'incidence' of Melanoma means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Melanoma diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Melanoma). 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 Melanoma: 53,600 annual cases (SEER 2002 estimate: skin melanomas)
Incidence Rate for Melanoma: approx 1 in 5,074 or 0.02% or 53,600 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Melanoma to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Melanoma to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Melanoma are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Melanoma in any region:
