Prevalence and Incidence of Cervical Cancer

Cervical Cancer: Rare Disease

Cervical Cancer is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Cervical Cancer, or a subtype of Cervical Cancer, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.

Incidence (annual) of Cervical Cancer:

13,000 annual cases in USA (SEER 2002 estimate) ... see also overview of Cervical Cancer.

Incidence Rate:

approx 1 in 20,923 or 0.00% or 13,000 people in USA [Source statistic for calcuation: "13,000 annual cases in USA (SEER 2002 estimate)" -- see also general information about data sources]

Incidence extrapolations for USA for Cervical Cancer:

13,000 per year, 1,083 per month, 250 per week, 35 per day, 1 per hour, 0 per minute, 0 per second. [Source statistic for calculation: "13,000 annual cases in USA (SEER 2002 estimate)" -- see also general information about data sources]

Lifetime risk for Cervical Cancer:

1 in 117 lifetime risk for women in the US (Cancer Facts and Figures, American Cancer Society, 2004)

Prevalance of Cervical Cancer:

The American Cancer Society estimated that about 12,800 women in the United States were diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer in 2000. (Source: excerpt from HPV: DSTD)

Incidence of Cervical Cancer:

An estimated 13,700 cases of invasive cervical cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 1998. (Source: excerpt from Sexually Transmitted Diseases Statistics, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)

The following statistics relate to the incidence of Cervical Cancer:

  • 10,520 new cases for cervix cancer in the US 2004 (Cancer Facts and Figures, American Cancer Society, 2004)
  • 10,520 new female cases for cervix cancer in the US 2004 (Cancer Facts and Figures, American Cancer Society, 2004)
  • Estimated 13,000 new cases in women in the US 2002 (Cancer Facts and Figures, American Cancer Society, 2004)
  • Cervix cancer incidence statistics by racial groups in the USA:

    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

    The term 'prevalence' of Cervical Cancer usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Cervical Cancer at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Cervical Cancer refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Cervical Cancer 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.
