Bladder Cancer Survival Rate

Bladder Cancer Survival Rate: Based on Stage

The stage of bladder cancer (see Bladder Cancer Staging) plays a role in the bladder cancer survival rate. Based on historical data:
 
  • 75 percent of urinary bladder cancer cases are diagnosed while the cancer is still confined to the primary site (localized stage)
     
  • 19 percent of urinary bladder cancer cases are diagnosed after the cancer has spread to regional lymph nodes or directly beyond the primary site
     
  • 3 percent of urinary bladder cancer cases are diagnosed after the cancer has already metastasized (distant stage)
     
  • 3 percent of urinary bladder cancer cases had staging information that was unknown.
     
The corresponding 5-year relative bladder cancer survival rates were:
 
  • 94.2 percent for localized
  • 48.4 percent for regional
  • 6.2 percent for distant
  • 61.1 percent for unstaged.
