Liver cancer survival statistics

One- and five-year survival statistics for liver cancer by age are presented here. The ICD code for liver cancer is ICD-10 C22.

The statistics on these pages give an overall picture of survival. Unless otherwise stated, the statistics include all adults diagnosed with liver cancer, 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 liver cancer in England and Wales are 1996-1999 (followed up to 2001). Find out why these are the latest statistics available.
