Oral Cancer Survival Rates

Oral cancer survival rates have increased approximately 15 percent from the mid 1960s until the latest National Cancer Institute Survey on the topic in 2004. In spite of this improvement, significant disparities remain in some population groups.

Key data points:

Oral Cancer Relative Survival (1996 to 2003):
Overall, 60% of people with oral cancer survive for 5 years.
Oral cancer survival rates are significantly lower for Black men and women.
Diagnosing oral cancer at an early stage significantly increases 5-year survival rates.

Oral Cancer Relative Survival Trends:
Oral cancer survival rates have steadily improved since 1975.
Disparities in survival rates between White and Black men have remained throughout this time period.
