90% of women survive uterine cancer for at least one year, and this is predicted to fall to 79% surviving for five years or more, as shown by
Uterine Cancer (C54-C55), Age-Standardised One-, Five- and Ten-Year Net Survival, Women (Aged 15-99), England and Wales, 2010-2011
95% LCL and 95% UCL are the 95% lower and upper
Five- and ten-year survival is predicted using an excess hazard statistical model
Uterine cancer survival falls only slightly beyond five years after diagnosis, which means most patients can be considered cured after five years. 78% of women are predicted to survive their disease for ten years or more, as shown by age-standardised net survival for patients diagnosed with uterine cancer during 2010-2011 in England and Wales. Out of 20 common cancers in England and Wales, ten-year survival for uterine cancer ranks 6th highest overall (and 4th highest for females only).
Uterine Cancer (C54-C55), Net Survival up to Ten Years after Diagnosis, Women (Aged 15-99), England and Wales, 2010-2011
Survival for uterine 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.
