Laryngeal Cancer Survival Rates 

Laryngeal cancer prognosis depends on the stage of the tumor at diagnosis and your lifestyle (including diet) during and after the treatment. More the cancer is diagnosed early, the more chance you have to survive. The diagnosis of a laryngeal cancer limited to the vocal cords is always excellent. In fact, five-year survival is observed in nearly 80% of cases. Five-year survival rate of laryngeal cancer after total laryngectomy is often less than 60%.  

Survival Rates by Age  

The overall 5-year relative survival rate for 1999-2005 was 61.6%. Five-year relative survival rates by race and sex were:  

  • 64.0% for white men;  
  • 59.6% for white women;  
  • 51.6% for black men;  
  • 46.1% for black women 

Death rates by races 

The age-adjusted death rate was 1.3 per 100,000 men and women per year. These rates are based on patients who died in 2002-2006 in the US. In general, death rates by race include: 

  • All Races: 2.3 per 100,000 men - 0.5 per 100,000 women 
  • White: 2.1 per 100,000 men  - 0.5 per 100,000 women 
  • Black: 4.7 per 100,000 men  - 0.7 per 100,000 women  
  • Asian/Pacific Islander: 0.7 per 100,000 men - 0.1 per 100,000 women  
  • American Indian/Alaska Native: 1.9 per 100,000 men   
  • Hispanic: 1.9 per 100,000 men  - 0.2 per 100,000 women
