Adrenal gland cancer statistics

Specific numbers for adrenal gland cancer are not reported separately, but are included in the general category, other endocrine cancer grouping. This broad category includes similar cancers that are grouped and reported together. As a result, the statistics provided do not necessarily reflect the incidence and mortality for adrenal gland cancer.

It can take several years to collect and confirm cancer data, so the number of new cancer cases and deaths from recent years may not be available for some time. The most recent data available are provided.
