What is the life expectancy for bone cancer?

Answer

According to Cancer Research UK, more than 40 percent of men and over 50 percent of women with primary bone cancer live for longer than five years after the initial diagnosis and treatment. Cancer can always recur, which is why doctors and researchers focus on the five year survival statistics.

According to Cancer Research UK, the prognosis for primary bone cancer depends on the stage of the cancer. Nearly 100 percent of people diagnosed with stage 1A bone cancer live for at least five years, while over 95 percent of those with stage 1B bone cancer live for a minimum of five years. The percentages drop to around 60 percent for those with stage 2A bone cancer and around 40 percent for those with stage 2B bone cancer.
