Dear customer,
Thanks for your reply.
Basically based on a study done in 2007, the stage 1 prognosis was divided into 2 further stages: stage 1A and 1B.
With stage 1A non small cell lung cancer, between 58 and 73 people out of every 100 (58% to 73%) will survive for 5 years or more after the diagnosis of cancer.
With stage 1B non small cell lung cancer, between 43 and 58 people out of every 100 (43% to 58%) will survive for 5 years or more after diagnosis of cancer.
