Cancer Survival Rate

Every cancer survivor is a fighter. Nonetheless, the long battle against the disease does not stop there. The impact of cancer can be both physical and psychological. Post-treatment wellness care can help you progressively regain your health by adopting a better, healthier lifestyle. Connecting with other cancer survivors, patients and families can also be a healing progress, by offering the information and emotional support with someone who truly understand your needs. 

Cancer survival rates can be used to develop a treatment plan and understand your prognosis. According to surveys, the 5-year survival rate for people with cervical cancer under treatment is 71.3%1, the 5-year survival rate for people with nasopharyngeal cancer reaches 80%1, while the 5-year survival rate for people with breast cancer is about 90%2.
