Cervical Cancer Survival Rates

Doctors typically look for survival rates of cervical cancer when attempting to explain a patient’s prognosis. Although some patients may not be interested in knowing, or may not find these numbers helpful, still other cancer patients want to have these survival statistics. These numbers are based on individuals who have endured similar situations.

When a 5-year survival rate is mentioned, it is referencing the percentage of people that have lived five years or longer after being diagnosed with cancer. One should also remember that many are cured of cancer and others live beyond five years. Additionally, these numbers include observable survival rates as well as deaths from all causes. Cancer patients sometimes die from other conditions, but this is not accounted for in these rates.

To obtain the 5-year survival rates, physicians must observe patients that received treatment 5 years ago. With recent improvements to treatments, plans for cancer one can expect that the outlook if more favorable for those being diagnosed and treated now for cervical cancer.

To determine cervical cancer survival rates, previous outcomes for large numbers of people are considered, but this in no way means any one person’s survival or failure to survive can be predicted. Other factors affect an individual’s outcome, and these include overall health and the way in which the cancer responds to treatment. Ask your doctor about how the following numbers apply to you since they are most familiar with all aspects of your health and your particular situation.

These rates reflect which stage the cancer was in when the patient received the diagnosis. Your doctor is the best person to provide you with information about what expectations you should have for survival is your cancer has progressed or returned.

Published in the 7th edition of the AJCC staging manual in 2010 are the following rates.  These rates are based on data that was collected from patients that were diagnosed between the years of 2000 to 2002 by the National Cancer Data Base. These represent the most up to date survival statistics using the current staging system.
