Dr. Steven Ginsberg
Hematology and Oncology 37 years experience
It depends: Survival of tongue cancer, as in all cancers, depends upon the stage and the treatment administered, as well as the underlying health of the person with the cancer.
Dr. Daniel Sampson
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 26 years experience
It depends: On the staging or how advanced the cancer is at the time of treatment. Involvement of lymph nodes is always more ominous. If you look at all people diagnosed with tongue cancer, the 5 year survival rate is around 50%.
