Answer

Overall survival rate at 5 years according to FIGO is shown below. Others have reported better survival rates with 5-year, 10-year, 15-year, and 20-year survival for patients with serous LMP as 97%, 95%, 92%, and 89%, respectively.

Five-year-survival rate for LMP tumors by FIGO stage (survival percentages rounded to nearest whole number) are as follows:

  • Stage IA - 93%
  • Stage IB - 90%
  • Stage IC - 91%
  • Stage IIA - 88%
  • Stage IIB - 86%
  • Stage IIC - 100%
  • Stage IIIA - 29%
  • Stage IIIB - 75%
  • Stage IIIC - 62%
  • Stage IV - 30%
  • Overall survival rate - 86%
