Answer

Hepatocellular adenomas are extremely rare. The annual incidence is 1 to 1.3 cases per 1 million persons per year. However, 3-4 cases per 100,000 people per year occur among women who have had exposure to estrogen-containing OCPs. A 5-fold increased risk exists with 5-7 years of OCP exposure, and a 25-fold increased risk exists with longer than 9 years of OCP exposure.
