Background: Gallbladder cancer is a rare cancer with unusual distribution, and few population-based estimates for the United States have been published. Methods: Using population-based cancer incidence and mortality data, we examined U.S. gallbladder cancer incidence and death rates for 2007–2011 and trends for 1999–2011. Results: During 2007 to 2011, approximately 3,700 persons were diagnosed with primary gallbladder cancer (rate = 1.13 cases per 100,000) and 2,000 died from the disease (rate…

Trends in Primary Gallbladder Cancer Incidence and Incidence-based Mortality in the United States, 1973 to 2015

The effects of treatment modalities, including laparoscopic cholecystectomy, adjuvant chemotherapy, and radiation on the incidence and IBM of GBC need to be further investigated.

Epidemiologic trends and geographic distribution of patients with gallbladder and extrahepatic biliary tract cancers in Canada.

Epidemiological trends of gallbladder cancer in Australia between 1982 to 2018: A population-based study utilizing the Australian Cancer Database

Incidence, mortality, sex, and age of GBC have significantly changed in Australia since 1982 and increasing incidence in the 6th to 8th decade of life in males, compared to previous years, was noted.

Gallbladder cancer epidemiology, treatment and survival in Southern Finland – a population-based study

The incidence of GBC is slightly decreasing in Southern Finland, but survival has not improved over time, and no improvement was noted over time in overall survival in patients with GBC, or in subgroups of different stages of G BC.

Trends in the Mortality of Biliary Tract Cancers Based on Their Anatomical Site in the United States From 2009 to 2018.

Changing mortality trends in various biliary tract cancers was noted with a disproportionately higher burden of fatality in minorities.

Cancer statistics for Hispanics/Latinos, 2015

Liver cancer incidence rates in Hispanic men, which are twice those in NHW men, doubled from 1992 to 2012; however, rates in men aged younger than 50 years declined by 43% since 2003, perhaps a bellwether of future trends for this highly fatal cancer.

Epidemiology of gallbladder cancer

Prevention of gallbladder cancer includes weight loss, vaccination against and treatment of bacterial infections, early detection and elimination of polyps and cysts, and avoidance of oral estrogen replacement therapy.

Epidemiology, incidence, and mortality of gallbladder cancer and its relation with development in the world

A significant correlation was seen between the standardized incidence and mortality rate of gallbladder cancer and the HDI and its dimensions (life expectancy at birth, average education).

Incidence and Mortality of Cancers of the Biliary Tract, Gallbladder, and Liver by Sex, Age, Race/Ethnicity, and Stage at Diagnosis: United States, 2013 to 2017

Key interventions targeted to high-risk populations may help reduce incidence and mortality of cancers of the biliary tract by improving primary prevention through strategies to reduce tobacco and alcohol use, control overweight and obesity, and promote hepatitis B vaccination and use of syringe service programs meant to curb the transmission of infectious diseases such as viral hepatitis.



Occurrence of pancreatic, biliary tract, and gallbladder cancers in Alaska Native people, 1973–2007

Pancreaticobiliary cancers, particularly biliary tract and gallbladder cancers, in both AN men and women and pancreatic cancer in women occur at an increased rate in AN people.

Occurrence of pancreatic, biliary tract, and gallbladder cancers in Alaska Native people, 1973-2007.

Pancreaticobiliary cancers, particularly biliary tract and gallbladder cancers, in both AN men and women and pancreatic cancer in women occur at an increased rate in AN people.

Biliary tract cancer incidence in the United States—Demographic and temporal variations by anatomic site

We evaluated incidence patterns of biliary tract cancers (gallbladder, extrahepatic bile duct, ampulla of Vater and not otherwise specified) to provide potential insight into the etiology of these

Gallbladder cancer worldwide: Geographical distribution and risk factors

Differences in incidence ratios point to variations in gallbladder cancer aetiology in different populations, but interventions able to prevent obesity, cholecystitis and gallstone formation should be assessed.

Epidemiology and Molecular Pathology of Gallbladder Cancer

The worldwide geographical distribution of gallbladder cancer is reported, the main etiologic hypotheses are reviewed, and some comments on perspectives for prevention are provided.

Descriptive study of gallbladder, extrahepatic bile duct, and ampullary cancers in the United States, 1997–2002

This population-based study suggests distinct etiologies of anatomic subsites of biliary tract cancer and caution against analytic investigations of all biliary tracts cancers combined.

Sex Disparities in Cancer Incidence by Period and Age

Observations emphasize the importance of sex in cancer etiopathogenesis and may suggest novel avenues of investigation.

Gallstones and risk of gallbladder cancer.

It was concluded that the risk of gallbladder cancer in untreated subjects with gallstones is heterogeneous, depending on race and sex as well as the period of exposure to gallstones.

Gallbladder cancer, a vanishing disease?

The age-standardized incidence of GBC declined drastically over the last three decades and an increasing number of early cholecystectomies for gallstones may play a role.
