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