According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, 604,000 women were diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2020. About 341,000 of those cases were lethal. The disease is most commonly diagnosed in women who are 30-65 years old. The average age at diagnosis is 50 years. The disease rarely occurs in girls younger than 20 years or older women. In 9 out of 10 cases, the pathology is caused by papillomavirus. Early diagnosis and comprehensive treatment help achieve the best survival rate. Find out how life expectancy differs at different stages of cancer development in this article.
Listen to the article:
Life expectancy at stage 0 cervical cancer
At 0 stage, the malignant cells affect only the surface of the organ. This stage is not included in the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) system and is called “in situ” carcinoma.
At this stage, the disease has no symptoms. Therefore, it is only possible to detect the development of the disease during gynaecological examinations.
At stage 0, the disease is diagnosed in women between the ages of 31 and 36. Only 7% of women manage to detect the disease of the “in situ” stage.
Life expectancy also depends on the age of the patient. The younger the woman, the higher the chances of remission. The overall 5-year survival rate according to the age criterion is:
We organize medical trips. We assist in finding a clinic, a doctor and the best treatment methods. MediGlobus is constantly in touch with patients from the moment of application until the return to the home country after treatment
The survival rate for stage 1 cervical cancer
In the first stage of disease development, the malignant cells are limited to the organ. They do not spread to neighbouring tissues or other organs. This stage has 2 groups: 1A and 1B. They are also divided into several subtypes.
The 5-year survival rate of patients for each stage is as follows:
The survival rate is influenced by the age of the patient, the presence of comorbid pathologies, the treatment program, and the patient’s lifestyle. The younger the patient, the higher the chances of winning the fight against the disease. The overall 5-year survival rate for cervical cancer is 66%.
For most patients, surgery is the mainstay of treatment. The severity of the intervention depends on the course of the malignant process and the need to preserve fertility. Abroad, about 80% of patients with stage 1 oncology can save the possibility of having a child in the future.
Additional treatments, such as radiation and chemical therapy, are recommended to kill residual cancer cells and reduce the risk of disease recurrence.

How long do people live with Stage II cervical cancer?
Stage II tumour has spread beyond the organ and affected the upper two-thirds of the vagina or other neighbouring tissues. Doctors distinguish two subgroups of the disease – 2A and 2B. Life expectancy with stage 2 cervical cancer is:
The surgery is indicated for stage 2A disease. It involves complete removal of the womb and cervix – a radical hysterectomy.
The doctor also performs resection of the pelvic lymph nodes. The patient then receives a course of chemicals and radiation.
Radiotherapy is indicated for 5 weeks and chemo for 2-3 weeks. The use of targeted drugs is possible.
How long do people live with stage 3 cervical cancer?
In the third stage of the disease, cancer cells are found in the lymph nodes and abdominal cavity. A combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy is indicated to treat the pathology.
Such a stage is divided into substages: 3A, 3B, and 3C. The latter, in turn, has subtypes: 3C1 and 3C2. The life expectancy of patients according to this classification is:
The prognosis for stage 4 cervical cancer
At this stage of cervical cancer, the disease has affected nearby organs or other parts of the body. Stage 4 is divided into two subcategories:
For stage 4 of the disease, the survival rate of patients does not exceed 19%. To slow down the progression of the pathology, chemotherapy is combined with radiation. Surgery is not performed at this stage.
