44% of men survive stomach cancer for at least one year, and this is predicted to fall to 20% surviving for five years or more, as shown by
Stomach cancer (C16), Age-Standardised One-, Five- and Ten-Year Net Survival, Adults (Aged 15-99), England and Wales, 2005-2011
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
Stomach cancer survival gradually continues to fall beyond five years after diagnosis in men, though in women the decrease is not significant.15% each of men and women are predicted to survive their disease for ten years or more, as shown by age-standardised net survival for patients diagnosed with stomach cancer during 2010-2011 in England and Wales. Out of 20 common cancers in England and Wales, ten-year survival for stomach cancer ranks 5th lowest overall.

Survival for stomach 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.
