Nowadays....: Overall survival of all prostate cancers is about: 5-yr relative survival - almost 100%; 10-yrs, about 99%;15-yr, about 94%. But its stage-related 5-yr survival is nearly 100% for local and regional disease, and dropped to 28% for those with distant metastasis. More on prostate cancer?
