Answer

The prognosis in patients with cervical cancer depends on the disease stage. In general, the 5-year survival rates are as follows:

  • Stage I - Greater than 90%

  • Stage II - 60-80%

  • Stage III - Approximately 50%

  • Stage IV - Less than 30%

The ACS estimated that 4220 women would die of cervical cancer in the United States in 2012. [41] This represents 1.3% of all cancer deaths and 6.5% of deaths from gynecologic cancers.
