Prostate Cancer and Testicular cancer survival rates

Testicular cancer is one of the most curable forms of cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute, the 5-year relative survival rate for all men with this cancer is 95%. If the cancer hasn't spread outside the testicle, the 5-year relative survival rate is 99%. Even if the cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes, the rate is 96%. If it has spread beyond the lymph nodes, the 5-year relative survival rate is around 71%.

The 5-year relative survival rate compares the number of people who are still alive 5 years after their cancer was found to the survival of others the same age who don't have cancer. Of course, many people live much longer than 5 years.
