Hello Anonymous,

Survival rates are often used by physicians as a standard way of discussing a patient's prognosis. The 5-year survival rate refers to the percentage of patients who live at least 5 years after their cancer is diagnosed. However, it is important to remember that many people live much longer than 5 years while many are even cured. Likewise, some people will die of their cancer and others will die from some other cause.

The American Cancer Society lists the 5 year survival rate by stages for endometrial (uterine) cancer.

To answer your question, 58% of patients with stage 3A endometrial adenocarcinoma have a 5-year survival rate.
