 Overall, 14% of people with lung cancer survive for at least 5 years.

 People who have stage I NSCLC and undergo lung surgery have a 60-70% chance of surviving 5 years.

 People with stage II NSCLC have a 30-40% chance of cure, and those with stage IIIa have a 20-30% chance of cure.

 People with extensive nonoperable Lung Cancer have an average survival duration of 9 months or less.

 Those with limited SCLC who receive Chemotherapy have a 2-year survival rate of 20-30% and a 5-year survival rate of 10-15%.

 People with advanced SCLC have an average survival duration of 6-9 months. How well a person functions can have a strong effect on how long he or she survives. A person with SCLC who functions well has an advantage over a person who cannot work or pursue normal activities. ©2016.
