Uterine Cancer Statistics: Lifetime Risk

Based on rates from 2000-2002, 2.61 percent of women (or 1 in 38 women) born today will be diagnosed with uterine cancer at some time during their lifetime. These statistics are called the lifetime risk of developing cancer. Sometimes it is more useful to look at the probability of developing uterine cancer between two age groups. For example, 1.33 percent of women will develop cancer of the corpus and uterus, between their 50th and 70th birthdays.

Uterine Cancer Statistics: Prevalence

On January 1, 2002, in the United States there were approximately 571,854 women alive who had a history of uterine cancer. This number included any person alive on January 1, 2002, who had been diagnosed with uterine cancer at any point prior to January 1, 2002, any person with active disease, and any person who had been cured of their disease.
