95% of men survive eye cancer for at least one year, and this is predicted to fall to 70% surviving for five years or more, as shown by
Eye Cancer (C69), Age-Standardised One-, Five- and Ten-Year Net Survival, Adults (Aged 15-90), England, 2009-2013
|1-Year Survival (%)||5-Year Survival (%)||10-Year Survival (%)|
Eye cancer survival continues to fall beyond five years after diagnosis. 61% of men and 58% of women are predicted to survive their disease for ten years or more, as shown by age-standardised net survival for patients diagnosed with eye cancer during 2009-2013 in England.
