Liver Cancer Survival Rates

Liver Cancer Survival Rates Based on Stage

The stage of liver cancer plays a role in the liver cancer survival rate as well. Based on historical data:
 
  • 31 percent of liver cancer cases are diagnosed while the cancer is still confined to the primary site (localized stage)
  • 26 percent are diagnosed after the cancer has spread to regional lymph nodes or directly beyond the primary site
  • 22 percent are diagnosed after the cancer has already metastasized (distant stage)
  • In 22 percent of cases, the staging information was unknown.
     
The corresponding five-year relative liver cancer survival rates were:
 
  • 19.0 percent for localized
  • 6.6 percent for regional
  • 3.4 percent for distant
  • 3.3 percent for unstaged.
