What % of prostate cancers are metastatic? The 5 yr survival rate is just 29%!

  • Hi Vidya,

    When we talk about survival, we talk in the context of the stage of the disease. When we say 5-year survival rate for Metastatic prostate cancer is 29%, it means that "only 29% of patients diagnosed with metastatic prostatic cancer survive up to 5 years". In the light of this info, about 10% of patients are diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer.
