What is the prognosis of lung cancer?

For the early stages, when the cancer is still localized (it only affects the lungs), the 5-year survival rate reaches 54%, but it drops to 4% if the disease is diagnosed late when the tumor has already spread from the lungs to other organs.

We wanted a resource where people who are looking for better help can find it, because one of the issues that I have found is that the diagnosis takes a little bit, some people don’t know if they are diagnosed or not. This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
