What are the survival rates of esophageal cancer?

It's stage 2.


Answer by  MedStudent01 (1131)

The survival rate ranges from 27-38%, depending on the TMN score and whether it's stage 2A or 2B. Treatment of cancer largely involves chemotherapy and maybe radiation therapy. Any surgery done would be for palliative care.

Throughout treatment the five year survival rate of esophageal cancer is 34% and decreases throughout. Upon reaching stage 2 esophageal cancer the patient has a five year survival rate of only 17 percent.
