According to recent NVSR estimates, the US average mortality rate of the cancer of the kidneys is 1 person every hour, 30 every day, 213 patients every week, and nearly 11,115 patients each year. These kidney cancer mortality rate estimations for the US clearly suggest that a large number of people in the United States die of this cancer every year.
Recent statistics provided by SEER also suggest that on an average, approximately 15.3 years of a patient’s life is lost due to all forms of kidney cancers, including the most commonly occurring renal cell carcinoma.
ACS (American Cancer Society) statistics for mortality rate of renal cancer in United States put forward a very dismal picture. Nearly 7,870 males and 4,610 females in the USA died due to cancer of the kidneys and other organs of the urinary system in the year 2004. According to cancer statistical reports of other nations, it was found that six in every 100,000 male deaths occurring in Canada and 2.5 percent male deaths occurring in Australia are attributed to this renal/pelvis cancer. Similarly, three in every 100,000 female deaths occurring in Canada and 3.2 in every 100,000 female deaths occurring in Australia were due to cancer of the kidneys. These statistics have been taken from the CCS (Canadian Cancer Statistical) Reports of NCI, Canada and the AACR and AIHW Cancer database of Australia.
In the US, nearly 56.3 percent people diagnosed with kidney cancers, stayed alive for 5 years after diagnosis. According to ACS reports, 63 percent White Americans and 61 percent African Americans managed to life for five years after diagnosis of renal cancer.
Similarly, in Wales and England, 59.8 percent patients above the age of 15 years showed survival rate of only 1 year, while 41.5 percent renal cancer patients showed a survival rate of five years.
