Can One Survive Stomach Cancer?

Q:
Can one survive stomach cancer?

A:
According to the National Cancer Institute, here are the 5 year relative survival rates for stomach cancer:

  • If the stomach cancer is in early stages and the cancer is still only in the stomach, the five-year survival rate is about 65%.
  • If the cancer spreads to areas near your stomach or to nearby lymph nodes, the five-year survival rate is about 30%.
  • If the cancer spreads far away from your stomach, the five-year survival rate is about 5%.

Stomach cancer can be associated with long-term survival if it is found and treated at an early stage. However, if the cancer is already advanced the outlook is poor.

To learn more you should go to a medical professional.
