What Are the Survival Rates for Women with Endometrial Cancer?

What Are Survival Rates for Women With Endometrial Cancer?

How well treatment works for women with endometrial cancer depends on the type and stage of cancer. These statistics are from Cancer Facts & Figures 2014 from the American Cancer Society:

  • The overall 1-year survival rate (percentage of women living at least one year after diagnosis) is 92%.

  • The overall 5-year survival rate (percentage of women living at least five years after diagnosis) is 82%.

  • The 5-year survival rate for women whose cancer is found before it spreads is 95%.

  • The 5-year survival rate for women whose cancer is found after it has spread, but it’s still contained near the uterus, is 68%.

  • The 5-year survival rate for advanced cancer, which has spread far from the uterus, is 17%.

  • Survival rates for African-American women are 23% lower than whites.

  • Most women whoh ave been diagnosed with endometrial cancer do not die of cancer. Instead they die of other causes such as obesity-related medical problems and heart disease.
