Prevalence and Incidence of Prostate conditions


advertisement

About prevalence and incidence statistics: The term 'prevalence' of Prostate conditions usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Prostate conditions at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Prostate conditions refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Prostate conditions diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived 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.

Prevalance of Prostate conditions: 52 per 1000 men - NHIS95; 2,803 million men (NIDDK)
Prevalance Rate: approx 1 in 38 or 2.60% or 7.1 million people in USA [about data]
