Statistics by Country for Glucagonoma

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Glucagonoma: These statistics are calculated extrapolations of various prevalence or incidence rates against the populations of a particular country or region. The statistics used for prevalence/incidence of Glucagonoma are typically based on US, UK, Canadian or Australian statistics. This extrapolation calculation is automated and does not take into account any genetic, cultural, environmental, social, racial or other differences across the various countries and regions for which the extrapolated Glucagonoma statistics below refer to. As such, these extrapolations may be highly inaccurate (especially for developing or third-world countries) and only give a general indication (or even a meaningless indication) as to the actual prevalence or incidence of Glucagonoma in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Glucagonoma: The word 'prevalence' of Glucagonoma usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Glucagonoma at any given time (i.e. people with Glucagonoma). The term 'incidence' of Glucagonoma means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Glucagonoma diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Glucagonoma). Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short 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.

Prevalance Rate for Glucagonoma: approx 1 in 2,720,000 or 0.00% or 100 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Glucagonoma to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Glucagonoma to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Glucagonoma are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Glucagonoma in any region:
