83% of women survive cervical cancer for at least one year, and this is predicted to fall to 67% surviving for five years or more, as shown by

Five- and ten-year survival is predicted using an excess hazard statistical model
Cervical cancer survival gradually continues to fall beyond five years after diagnosis. 63% of women are predicted to survive their disease for ten years or more, as shown by age-standardised net survival for patients diagnosed with cervical cancer during 2010-2011 in England and Wales. Out of 20 common cancers in England and Wales, ten-year survival for cervical cancer ranks 8th highest overall (and 6th highest for females only). These high survival rates can be attributed in large part to cervical screening. Screening can detect cervical cancers at an early stage when treatment is most likely to be successful.

Survival for cervical cancer is reported in Scotland and Northern Ireland,[2,3] though it is difficult to make survival comparisons between countries due to different methodologies and criteria for including patients in analyses.
