Hello Anon
Thank you for writing!
Survival rates for this kind of cancer depends on what stage the cancer was in when treatment occurred. The lower the stage, the better the chances are. The 5 year survival rate for someone with Stage 1 small cell lung cancer is about 30%. For higher stages, the rate gets lower. However, many live much longer - these percentages are estimates.
