Risk factors for appendix cancer may vary, but often involve lifestyle habits, age, medical history and other considerations. Having a risk factor for cancer does not mean you will get the disease. Some people who have multiple risk factors never develop appendix cancer, while others get the disease despite no known risk factors.. Risk factors include. Cancer of the appendix is very rare and is typically found incidentally during appendectomies, in about 1% of the cases. According to a report published by the National Cancer Institute, using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database, appendix cancer account for about % of gastrointestinal are several subytpes.
