How well treatment works for women with endometrial cancer depends on the type and stage of cancer. These statistics are from Cancer Facts & Figures 2013 from the American Cancer Society:
The overall one-year survival rate (percentage of women living at least one year after diagnosis) is 92%.
The overall five-year survival rate (percentage of women living at least five years after diagnosis) is 82%.
The five-year survival rate for women whose cancer is found before it spreads is 95%.
The five-year survival rate for women whose cancer is found after it has spread, but it’s still contained near the uterus, is 67%.
The five-year survival rate for advanced cancer, which has spread far from the uterus, is 16%.
Survival rates for African-American women are at least 8% lower than whites for every stage. The reasons for this are not clear.
