Prognosis of lung cancer

The prognosis depends on whether the cancer is localized, regional, or metastatic at the time of diagnosis. For lung cancer 15.9% are diagnosed at the local stage and the 5-year survival for localized lung cancer is 55.6%. The overall 5-year survival rate for lung cancer patients during the period 2007-2013 was 18.1%.

Lung cancer is the first leading cause of cancer death in the United States and the number of deaths is highest among people aged 65-74. Death rates have been falling on average 2.5% each year over 2005-2014.

In 2014, there were an estimated 527,228 people living with lung cancer in the United States and in 2017 there are an estimated 155,870 people will die of this disease (33).
