Anal Cancer Prognosis   

Prognosis of anal cancer depends on the initial stage of the tumor, your lifestyle and age. According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), from 2002-2006, the median age at death for cancer of the anus, anal canal, and anorectum was 65 years of age

In small tumors detected at an early stage, the 5-year survival rate was obtained in 85 to 90% of cases. Nevertheless, survival rate is only 20 to 40% for stage 3 and 4 tumors. According to the same Institute, the overall 5-year relative survival rate for 1999-2005 was 66.3%. Five-year relative survival rates by race and sex were:

  • 61.8% for white men;  
  • 70.3% for white women;  
  • 53.7% for black men;  
  • 65.7% for black women.
