Statistics About Kidney Cancer

Statistics About Kidney Cancer

Some people use statistics to try to figure out their chance of getting cancer or of being cured. Statistics show what happens to large groups of people. Because no two people are alike, you cannot use them to predict what will happen to you.

Here are some statistics about kidney cancer from the American Cancer Society. They include both adults and children and both renal cell and transitional cell carcinomas:

  • About 65,000 people in the U.S. will be told they have kidney cancer in 2012.

  • Kidney cancer is more common in men than in women. Of these cases, about 40,000 will be in men and approximately 25,000 cases will be in women.

  • About 14,000 people in the U.S. will die of kidney cancer in 2012.
