About statistics:

This page presents a variety of statistics about Multiple Myeloma. The term 'prevalence' of Multiple Myeloma usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Multiple Myeloma at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Multiple Myeloma refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Multiple Myeloma 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.
