    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

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