Incidence of Laryngeal Cancer by County, Males, 2016-2020

Why Is This Important?

During 2020, 218 male and 57 female New Jersey residents were diagnosed with cancer of the larynx (voice box). Factors that can increase your risk of laryngeal cancer include: tobacco use, including smoking and chewing tobacco; heavy alcohol consumption; and possibly a virus called the human papillomavirus (HPV).

Definition

Incidence rate of invasive laryngeal cancer for a defined population in a specified time interval. Rates are age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S. Standard Population. Rates are per 100,000 population.

Data Notes

  • Data have been age-adjusted to the U.S. 2000 standard population.
  • Incidence rates (cases per 100,000 population per year) are age-adjusted to the 2000 US standard population (19 age groups: <1, 1-4, 5-9, ..., 80-84, 85+). Rates are for invasive cancer only (except for bladder cancer which is invasive and in situ) or unless otherwise specified. Number of cases (numerator) is the total count of cases in five years.
