The incidence of carotid body tumor is less than 3 in 100,000 individuals. It is the most common paraganglioma of the head and neck and comprises approximately 65% of paragangliomas. The prevalence of head and neck paraganglioma is 3% of all paraganglioma. This tumor is more commonly observed in the adults and particularly in their fifth decade of life. It affects both gender equally.
Epidemiology and Demographics
- The incidence of this tumor is less than 3 in 100,000 individuals.
- The incidence of malignant case has been observed to be 10%.
- The prevalence of carotid body tumor is approximately 65% of head and neck paraganglioma.
- The prevalence of head and neck paraganglioma is 3% of all paraganglioma.
- The estimated prevalence of parasymapathetic paraganglioma is approximately 1-2 cases per 100,000 individuals worldwide.
- Carotid body tumor is more commonly observed in the adults and particularly in their fifth decade of life.
- In familial cases, the mean age of onset is younger, being the second or fourth decade of life.
- There is no gender preference in the incidence of this tumor according to the recent literature except in the high altitude where the tumor is more prevalent among women.
