Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a type of kidney cancer that originates in the lining of the proximal convoluted tubule, a part of the very small tubes in the kidney that transport waste molecules from the blood to the urine. The condition is asymptomatic in its initial stages, and as a result, people with RCC are often in the advanced stages of the disease by the time it is discovered. The initial symptoms of RCC often include blood in the urine, flank pain, a mass in the abdomen or flank, weight loss, fever, hypertension, night sweats, and a general feeling of being unwell. Kidney cancer is among the 10 most frequently occurring cancers in Western countries.
GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that there were 186,179 incident cases of RCC in the 8MM in 2013, and the number of incident cases will grow 6.25% over the next decade to 302,449 incident cases. In 2013, there were 593,228 prevalent cases of RCC in the 8MM. Each of the 8MM will see an increase in prevalent cases over the 10-year forecast period.
This forecast is supported by ageand sex-specific data for the incidence. The oneto five-year relative survival data, which were used for the five-year diagnosed prevalent cases forecast, are supported by country-specific, population-based studies that are nationally representative of the entire population in the respective markets. Additionally, in each of the 8MM, the analysis is strengthened by the use of a consistent methodology for the diagnosed incident cases forecast, using regression techniques, and is based on 15 years of country-specific historical data points pertaining to the ageand sex-specific diagnosed incidence of RCC.
- The Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) EpiCast Report provides an overview of the risk factors, comorbidities, and the global and historical trends for RCC in the eight major markets 8MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Japan, and urban China). It includes a 10-year epidemiological forecast for the diagnosed incident cases of RCC segmented by sex and age (in five-year age groups beginning at 20 years and ending at 85 years and older).
- GlobalData epidemiologists also forecast the five-year diagnosed prevalent cases of RCC in the 8MM. Additionally, the report provides the RCC diagnosed incident cases, segmented by the stage at diagnosis, for the 8MM.
- The RCC epidemiology report is written and developed by Mastersand PhD-level epidemiologists.
- The EpiCast Report is in-depth, high quality, transparent and market-driven, providing expert analysis of disease trends in the 8MM.
