What Is the Survival Rate of Patients With Endometrial Cancer?

Q:
What is the survival rate of patients with endometrial cancer?

A:
There is never an accurate answer to the question.

As survival rates are often based on previous statistics of people who had the disease, but they can’t predict what will happen in any specific person’s case.

The following chart will help you get a general idea but not certain.

(The survival rates below depend on the stage of the cancer at the diagnosis time .
Still, these rates do not apply to cancers that have come back after treatment or have spread after treatment starts.
The 5-year survival rate is the percentage of people who live at least 5 years after being diagnosed with cancer.)

Stage 5-year survival rate
stage 0 90%
stage IA 88%
stage IB 75%
stage II 69%
stage IIIA 58%
stage IIIB 50%
stage IIIC 47%
stage IVA 17%
stage IVB 15%

The numbers below come from the National Cancer Data Base as published in the AJCC Staging Manual in 2017. And they are based on people diagnosed between 2000 and 2002.

Finally remember, survival rates are estimates – your outlook can vary based on a lot of factors specific to you. Your doctor can tell you a more reliable answer as he or she is familiar with the aspects of your own situation.
