About prevalence and incidence statistics:

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