What is the survival rate of a 62 year old male with asbestosis and copd?
Many people who worked with asbestos did not develop a disease, although many did. Some of those who developed asbestosis or lung cancer as a result of working with asbestos did survive the disease, at least for a time. Mesothelioma, another disease caused by asbestos, has a very low survival rate, but a few people survive even that disease.
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.
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.
