Squamous Cell Carcinoma Prognosis   

Your chances of surviving a squamous cell carcinoma depend largely on the stage and size of the tumor. A tumor with a diameter greater than two centimeters and an invasion depth of more than 3 cm often has a poor prognosis. However, in most cases, squamous cell carcinoma prognosis is good. When treated early, the tumor is permanently cured in more than 90% of cases.  

However, the survival rates tend to differ from one race to another. The overall 5-year relative survival rate for 1999-2005 from 17 SEER geographic areas was 91.1%. Five-year relative survival rates by race and sex were:  

·         88.6% for white men;  

·         93.7% for white women;  

·         86.2% for black men;  

·         91.1% for black women.
