This may not be of very much interest to many, but I did go back to the original statistics from the American Cancer Society which was sited as the source of these numbers. As this article states as well as the ACS site, these statistics apply to "liver and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma". The article is on "Cholangiocarcinoma" but they did combine primary liver cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma being the most common, with cholangiocarcinoma when giving the statistics. I just found it very interesting that CC statistics were not given separately.
The ACS site says: "People are not statistics. Every person is different, and every person will have his/her own experience with cancer and its treatment. And the statistics are calculated from data that may be 5 or 10 years old..." Cherbourg commented on that earlier and I think it's very true.
I just needed to clarify/understand these numbers for myself and anyone who might be reading them and felt the same as I about them!
