Cancer Prognosis

A prognosis is the doctor's best estimate of how cancer will affect a person. Many factors can affect a person's prognosis. Survival statistics are one tool that doctors use to develop a prognosis for a person with cancer. Doctors often look at studies that measure survival for a particular type of cancer, stage or risk group, when developing a prognosis.

There are different types of cancer survival statistics and different ways to measure and report survival. In general, survival is the proportion of people with cancer who are alive at some point in time (such as 1, 3, 5 or 10 years) after their diagnosis. Prognosis depends on many factors, including:

  • Type of cancer
  • Stage
  • Characteristics of the cancer
  • Treatments chosen
  • Response to treatment
