Find out about survival for lung cancer.

People ask us for this information but not everyone with cancer wants to read it. So, if you aren’t sure whether you want to know at the moment, you can come back to it later.

These are general statistics based on large groups of patients. They can’t tell you what will happen in your individual case.
No one can tell you exactly how long you’ll live with lung cancer. It depends on your individual situation, treatment and level of fitness.

Your doctor can give you more information about your own outlook (prognosis). Or you can talk to the Cancer Research UK nurses on freephone 0808 800 4040, from 9 to 5, Monday to Friday.

Survival for non small cell lung cancer by stage
There are no UK-wide statistics for non small cell lung cancer survival.

The following statistics come from the 2007 Lung Cancer Staging Project. This worldwide study collected data about lung cancer on more than 81,000 patients from 19 countries. There is a range of statistics for each stage because for some patients the stage was based on the results of scans and tests, and for other patients the stage was found during surgery.
Stage 1
Stage 1 non small cell lung cancer is divided into 2 stages, stage 1A and 1B.

For stage 1A non small cell lung cancer, between 58 and 73 out of every 100 people (58% to 73%) will survive for 5 years or more after diagnosis.

For stage 1B non small cell lung cancer, between 43 and 58 out of every 100 people (43% to 58%) will survive for 5 years or more after they are diagnosed.
