    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

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