In Hepatocellular Carcinoma, the maximal survival rate is only 5% can live for 5 years for malignant cancers... the survival rate depends on the nature of tumor whether benign or malignant.., and also extent, spread, metastasis of the cancer... tumors of 3rd or 4th stage maximal survival rate is less than 5 years...
