71% of men survive leukaemia (all subtypes combined) for at least one year, and this is predicted to fall to 54% surviving for five years or more, as shown by
Leukaemia (C91-C95), Age-Standardised One-, Five- and Ten-Year Net Survival, Adults (Aged 15-99), England and Wales, 2010-2011
|1-Year Survival (%)||5-Year Survival (%)||10-Year Survival (%)|
95% LCL and 95% UCL are the 95% lower and upper
Five- and ten-year survival is predicted using an excess hazard statistical model
Leukaemia survival gradually continues to fall beyond five years after diagnosis. 48% of men and 44% of women are predicted to survive their disease for ten years or more, as shown by age-standardised net survival for patients diagnosed with leukaemia during 2010-2011 in England and Wales. Out of 20 common cancers in England and Wales, ten-year survival for leukaemia ranks 8th lowest overall.

Survival for leukaemia 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.
