Prognosis of vulvar cancer

The earlier vulvar cancer is caught, the better chance a person has of surviving five years after being diagnosed. 59.5% are diagnosed at the local stage and the 5-year survival for localized vulvar cancer is 86.1%. The number of vulvar cancer deaths is highest among women aged 85+. Death rates have been rising on average 0.7% each year over 2004-2013. (8)

The two most important factors for survival are tumor size and lymph node metastases. These factors are taken into account for the staging system.
