39,300 annual cases in USA (SEER 2002 estimate) ... see also overview of Endometrial Cancer.

Incidence Rate:

approx 1 in 6,921 or 0.01% or 39,300 people in USA [Source statistic for calcuation: "39,300 annual cases in USA (SEER 2002 estimate)" -- see also general information about data sources]

Incidence extrapolations for USA for Endometrial Cancer:

39,299 per year, 3,274 per month, 755 per week, 107 per day, 4 per hour, 0 per minute, 0 per second. [Source statistic for calculation: "39,300 annual cases in USA (SEER 2002 estimate)" -- see also general information about data sources]

About prevalence and incidence statistics:

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