Bone and connective tissue cancers survival statistics
One- and five-year survival statistics for bone and connective tissue cancer by age are presented here. The ICD codes for bone and connective tissue cancers are ICD-10 C40, C41, C46 and C49.
The statistics on these pages give an overall picture of survival. Unless otherwise stated, the statistics include all adults diagnosed with bone and connective tissue cancers, at all ages, stages and co-morbidities. The survival time experienced by an individual patient may be much higher or lower, depending on specific patient and tumour characteristics. If you are a patient, you will probably find our CancerHelp pages more relevant and useful.
The latest survival statistics available for bone and connective tissue cancers in England are 1996-1999 (followed up to 2001). Find out why these are the latest statistics available.
