Prognosis of bladder cancer

The prognosis depends on whether the cancer is localized, regional, or metastatic at the time of diagnosis. For bladder cancer 34.4% are diagnosed at the local stage and the 5-year survival for localized bladder cancer is 70.2%. The overall 5-year survival rate for bladder cancer patients during the period 2007-2013 was 77.3%.

The number of bladder cancer deaths is highest among people aged 75-84. Death rates have been stable over 2005-2014.

In 2014, there were an estimated 696,440 people living with bladder cancer in the United States and in 2017 there are an estimated 16,870 people will die of this disease (4).
