A recent review estimated the 5-year survival rate for people with ameloblastic carcinoma to be around 73%. Ameloblastic carcinoma does have the potential to spread (metastasize) to distant parts of the body, such as the lung or brain. Metastasis adversely affects prognosis. The estimated 5-year survival rate for people with metastatic disease is around 21%.
