Gallbladder cancer accounts for less than 1% of all new cases in the UK (2014), accounting for less than 1% of all male cases, and less than 1% of all female cases.[1-4]
In 2014, there were 975 new cases of gallbladder cancer in the UK: 251 (26%) in men and 724 (74%) in females, giving a male:female ratio of around 3:10.[1-4] The
Gallbladder cancer is one of the few cancers which can occur in both sexes but is more common in women than men. This is at least partly due to sex differences in exposure to risk factors.

For gallbladder cancer, like most cancer types, differences between countries largely reflect risk factor prevalence in years past.
