Prognosis With Kidney Cancer

The American Cancer Society estimated that 38,890 men and women (24,650 men and 14,240 women) would be diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2006, and 12,840 men and women would die of the disease during the year. As with treatment options, a person's prognosis will depend on:
 
  • The stage
  • The person's age
  • The person's general health.
 
The overall five-year relative kidney cancer survival rate from 1995 to 2001 was 64.6 percent.
