77% of men survive soft tissue sarcoma for at least one year, and this falls to 55% surviving for five years or more, as shown by
Soft Tissue Sarcoma Age-Standardised One-, Five- and Ten-Year Relative Survival, Adults (Aged 15-85+), UK, 1996-2009
|Ad Hoc Sex||1-Year Survival (%) (2005-2009)||5-Year Survival (%) (2001-2005)||10-Year Survival (%) (1996-2000)|
Five- and ten-year survival is predicted using an excess hazard statistical model.
Soft tissue sarcoma survival continues to fall beyond five years after diagnosis. 46% of men and 43% of women survive their disease for ten years or more, as shown by age-standardised relative survival for patients diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma during 1996-2000 in the UK.
