Prognosis of liver cancer

The prognosis depends on whether the cancer is localized, regional, or metastatic at the time of diagnosis. For liver cancer 43.2% are diagnosed at the local stage and the 5-year survival for localized liver cancer is 31.1%. The overall 5-year survival rate for liver cancer patients during the period 2007-2013 was 17.6%.

Liver cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer death in the United States and the death rate is highest among people aged 55-64. Death rates have been rising on average 2.6% each year over 2005-2014.

In 2014, there were an estimated 66,771 people living with liver cancer in the United States and in 2017 there are an estimated 28,920 people will die of this disease (10).
