Types Of Cancer And Survival Rates

The following are the most common types of cancer and survival rates for each of them.

Types of cancer and survival rates – Breast cancer
This is the most common cancer that affects women. The improvement of diagnosis and treatment method has increased its survival rates, with 83% of diagnosed patients surviving the disease.

Types of cancer and survival rates – Lung cancer
Lung cancer is the most malignant types of cancer with less than 10% survival rates. This means that out of 100 persons diagnosed of lung cancer, only 10 of them survive the disease and stay alive for more than 5 years.

Types of cancer and survival rates – Colorectal cancer
This is the cancer of the rectum and colon. It is a very common type of cancer with about 50% survival rate.

Types of cancer and survival rates – Prostate cancer
This is the most common type of cancer in men. Its survival rate is 75% which is much higher than some other types of cancers.

Types of cancer and survival rates – Ovarian cancer
The survival rate for this one depends on the age of the patient. It has 70% survival rate for those under 44 years but 19% survival rate for those above 50 years.
