What Are The Chances Of Surviving Brain Cancer?

Survival rates are a way to get a general idea of the outlook (prognosis) for people with a certain type of tumor. They tell you what portion of people with the same type of tumor are still alive a certain amount of time (usually 5 years) after they were diagnosed. They can’t tell you how long you will live, but they may help give you a better understanding about how likely it is that your treatment will be successful.
Survival rates for more common adult brain and spinal cord tumors:

Type of Tumor 5-Year Relative Survival Rate
20-44                      45-54
Low-grade (diffuse) astrocytoma                       68%                       44%
Anaplastic astrocytoma                                        54%                       32%
Glioblastoma                                                          19%                        8%
