The survival rate for stage 2 liver cancer is 28 percent, as stated by the American Cancer Society as of January 2015. The survival rate means that 28 percent of people with stage 2 liver cancer will live at least 5 years after their cancer is diagnosed.
Stage 2 liver cancer is a type of localized cancer, which means that it has not spread to other organs of the lymph nodes. Stage 1, stage 2 and stage 3 liver cancer are all considered localized cancer.
Patients who are diagnosed with a small tumor and do not suffer from cirrhosis of the liver have a 5-year survival rate of approximately 50 percent.
Individuals with early liver cancer who receive a liver transplant have a survival rate of 60 to 70 percent.
