    Marlene, only your doctor can give you statistics specific to your exact diagnosis and treatment; so your oncologist is the person to ask about this. In general, I'd GUESS that 5-year survival rate is in the mid-90s, and recurrence rate in the low single digits. But please do ask your doctor, OK? Good luck - PJH
