Survival rate between smoker cigarette and non smoker?
I know it would be a higher survival rate if ur a non-smoker
The generally accepted answer to the survival rate question is 15%. This is just an average and depends on many factors. These factors include how early the cancer is detected and at what stage the cancer has reached. Clearly, the later the stage the lower the survival rate. Other factors that would improve survival rate include type of treatment and other mitigating circumstances.
one major reason is that cigarette smoke contains tar which coats the avioli in the lungs. these are special projections in the lung that increase surface area (an increased surface area is proportional to an increased absorption rate, in this case dissolving oxygen gas on the moist membrane of the lung.) as the tar coats the avioli the available surface area decreases and therefore the absorption rate decreases. so essentially a smoker is getting less…
The survival rates for colon cancer depend on in which stage the cancer is originally detected. If detected at an early stage, the five year survival rate can be as high as 90%, however if the cancer goes undetected into a distant stage, the five year survival rate can drop dramatically, becoming 12%.
Answer 5 year survival rate is 89.3% with CABG then PTCA. Please keep in mind that a person with this condition should work closely with their Cardiologist and family doctor. Don't always believe in percentages or that 5 year survival rate as patients astound specialists all the time with a much longer survival rate.
Multiple myeloma is a highly individualistic disease. Your survival rate, therefore, will depend on the characteristics and severity of your individual case. A few years ago, the average survival rate was about 3-5 years. However, due to the work of International Myeloma Foundation in encouraging research and new treatments, survival has increased to around 10 years, on average.
