There are three main types of uterine cancer: adenocarcinoma, clear-cell carcinoma, and papillary serous carcinoma. Any prognosis depends upon which type of uterine cancer the person has and how quickly it was caught. Stage 2 uterine cancer is classified as either IIA or IIB. In IIA the cancer has spread to the top layers of the cervix. In stage IIB it’s moved into the deepest layers of the cervix. Prognosis depends upon whether the cancer is classified as IIA or IIB as IIB requires both surgery and chemotherapy (and/or radiation). MD Anderson places the 5-year survival for stage 2 uterine cancer at 75 percent.
