I was wondering - how does one change/correct the description for this page's Google listing? It states "... about this rare neoplasm", while adenocarcinoma (in the broadest sense of malignant+gland epithelial) is one of the most common types of human cancer. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:22, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Lung Adenocarcinoma Incidence[edit]

Just wondering whether the stats here are accurate - I have a copy of General and Systematic Pathology, 5th ed, 2009 by Underwood and Cross that states 30-40% of incidences of lung cancer as adenocarcinoma. I don't want to change it in case the figures are wrong, but can anyone confirm this?

I believe they are referring to small cell Adenocarcinoma. This is the common form of the cancer. Large cell is the one that is classified as 10% in rarity. I hope this helps.Furballlady (talk) 22:16, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

According to the 2008 WHO Tumors of the Lung, Pleura, Thymus and Heart, adenocarcinomas make up 28% of lung cancers in men and 42% of those in women. There is no such entity as small cell adenocarcinoma of the lung. There is a groups of large cell carcinomas, but these do not show glandular differentiation and, as such are not considered adenocarcinomas. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:21, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
Now sorted (c40% is right). Wiki CRUK John (talk) 14:29, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

It says insulinoma is a type of VIPoma, yet on each of their respective pages it says insulinoma is a tumor derived from beta cells and VIPoma originated from NON beta islets cells of the pancreas. Can someone clear this up? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:41, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Doesn't seem to be there now Wiki CRUK John (talk) 14:29, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

The main article titled "Adenocarcinoma of the lung"[1] also states "Nearly 40% of lung cancers in the US are adenocarcinoma...", therefore contradicting the "80%" stated in this article. Andyjg13 (talk) 20:41, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Breast Cancer[edit]

I'm looking at a statistical breakdown of breast cancers from 1975 -2009 that shows Adenocarcinoma accounts for 99% of breast cancers, yet there is nothing in this wiki regarding it. I would hope someone can correct this glaring oversight or explain here why it is not a glaring oversight. I'm sure there are people here far more qualified to do it than I am.
