In brief: Stage and biology

It depends on the stage, the biology/genetic profiles, the treatment you received, age, overall condition etc.
The earlier your stage is the higher your overall survival percentage is- off course providing that you receive the appropriate treatment. Discuss in detail with your oncologist.

In brief: Survival rate

Chances of 1 year survival are about 90% for people with stages i & ii non small cell lung cancer.
That drops to 40% for stage iii, and less than 20% for stage iv.
