Prognosis of laryngeal cancer

The prognosis depends on whether the cancer is localized, regional, or metastatic at the time of diagnosis. For laryngeal cancer, 54.9% are diagnosed at the local stage and the 5-year survival for localized laryngeal cancer is 77%. The overall 5-year survival rate for patients with laryngeal cancer during the period 2007-2013 was 60.7%.

The number of laryngeal cancer deaths is highest among people aged 65-74. Death rates have been falling on average 2.3% each year over 2005-2014.

In 2014, there were an estimated 99,914 people living with laryngeal cancer in the United States and in 2017 there are an estimated 3,660 people will die of this disease (1).
