Better than even: This depends on variables including your age (younger does better), but even ten years ago, about 2/3 of people with stage IV (and stage is the major prognosticator) who were alive at one year were alive at ten (at which point it's unlikely to recur).

I also see you report erectile dysfunction; I hope this is getting worked up and especially that prolactinoma and hemochromatosis have been ruled out. Best wishes. ...Read more
