The survival or prognosis of a patient with any form of cancer depends on the severity and extent of the underlying condition, which is determined by staging of the cancer. Staging of the cancer is determined on the basis of size, location and organ involvement of the tumor / cancer.

Hence it would be recommended that you consult the treating doctors who can provide you proper answers and clear your doubts.

I hope this helps.
