82% of women survive vaginal or vulval cancer for at least one year, and this is predicted to fall to 64% surviving for five years or more, as shown by
Vaginal or Vulval Cancer (C51, C52), Age-Standardised One-, Five- and Ten-Year Net Survival, Women, (Aged 15-90), England, 2009-2013
Vaginal or vulval cancer survival continues to fall beyond five years after diagnosis. 53% of women are predicted to survive their disease for ten years or more, as shown by age-standardised net survival for patients diagnosed with vaginal or vulval cancer during 2009-2013 in England.
