See below. 5 year survival is quoted as 36% for stage 2a and 25% for stage 2b clinically, and 46% for stage 2a and 36% for stage 2b histologically (which means that the stage was confirmed at the time of surgery). Bear in mind these are statistics and every patient is an individual - you can do either better or worse. The above numbers also presume you are being treated. Good luck!
Depends. I am going to assume this is stage ii non-small-cell and not of an unusual type (i.e., it is squamous cell or adenocarcinoma). The straight odds of a 5-year survival are much better than they used to be -- almost 50%, but the pathologist's report and gene studies will alter this some. Get frank talk from your physician, and remain proactive as you've done by writing us. Good luck.
