How likely is surviving lung cancer?

In brief: Depends on stage...

The best predictor of surviving lung cancer is the stage or extent of the disease at diagnosis.
If the cancer is small and has not spread out of the lungs, then much better odds of survival. If the cancer is large and has spread to lymph nodes and other organs (like liver, adrenals, or brain), then long term survival is less likely.

In brief: Depends

Found early, small and peripheral in the lung one may be cured if advanced, small cell, metastatic there is palliative but no cures likely.
