49% of men survive gallbladder cancer for at least one year, and this is predicted to fall to 20% surviving for five years or more, as shown by
Gallbladder Cancer (C23, C24), 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 (%)|
Gallbladder cancer survival is similar at five and ten years after diagnosis. 17% of men and 13% of women are predicted to survive their disease for ten years or more, as shown by age-standardised net survival for patients diagnosed with gallbladder cancer during 2009-2013 in England.
