Cervical Cancer: Survival Rates

Survival rates for cervical cancer are high with early diagnosis and treatment. This is why regular screening for cervical cancer is very important.

Survival rates tell how likely it is that people with cancer, detected at the same stage, will be alive 5 years from now. Here are the known survival rates for cervical cancer:

  • 92 percent if cancer is detected while it’s still confined to the cervix and uterus
  • 58 percent if cervical cancer has spread to the uterus and nearby lymph nodes
  • 17 percent if cervical cancer has spread to parts of the body that are not close to the cervix
  • 66 percent if all stages of cervical cancer are combined

 

Preventing cervical cancer through vaccination

Cervical cancer is one of the most preventable forms of cancer. Getting the HPV vaccine early and having regular screening tests can help prevent cervical cancer.

Consult your doctor for more information on cervical cancer prevention and treatment. Get the HPV vaccine at the participating Watsons branch near you.
