In brief: 5yr suvival bystage

Ia = 49% ib = 45% iia = 30% iib = 31% iiia = 14% iiib = 5% iv = 1% http://www.

In brief: Stage

As noted by other physician, there are statistical based survival estimates by stage.
But, each patient is an individual. It is most critical to speak with your cancer team. They will develop multi-disciplan approach and treatment plan and have a more personalized/individualized determination of reasonable prognosis.
