How well treatment works for women with endometrial cancer depends on the type and stage of cancer. These statistics are from Cancer Facts & Figures 2014 from the American Cancer Society:
The overall 1-year survival rate (percentage of women living at least one year after diagnosis) is 92%.
The overall 5-year survival rate (percentage of women living at least five years after diagnosis) is 82%.
The 5-year survival rate for women whose cancer is found before it spreads is 95%.
The 5-year survival rate for women whose cancer is found after it has spread, but it’s still contained near the uterus, is 68%.
The 5-year survival rate for advanced cancer, which has spread far from the uterus, is 17%.
Survival rates for African-American women are 23% lower than whites.
Most women who have been diagnosed with endometrial cancer do not die of cancer. Instead they die of other causes such as obesity-related medical problems and heart disease.
