Statistics About Adrenal Cancer
Some people use statistics to try to figure out their chances of getting cancer or to figure out how likely it is that they will be cured. Statistics show what happens with large groups of people. However, because no two people are alike, statistics cannot be used to find out what will happen to a particular person.
These are some statistics from the American Cancer Society about adrenal cancer:
Adrenal cortical cancer, called adrenal cortical carcinoma, is very rare. There are probably about 300 new cases per year, but the actual number of cases is not known. They are far less common than adrenal adenomas.
