Some people use statistics to try to figure out their chance of getting cancer or of being cured. Keep in mind, however, that statistics show what happens with large groups of people. Because no two people are alike, you can’t use statistics to know or predict what will happen to you. These are some statistics from the American Cancer Society about laryngeal cancer in the United States:
In 2013, about 12,300 people will be told they have laryngeal cancer.
Laryngeal cancer is about 4 times more common among men than women.
Approximately 3,600 people will die of this cancer this year.
