Hypercalcemia (Elevated Calcium Levels) (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
The results of treatment for hypercalcemia depend on the underlying cause of the condition. If hypercalcemia is seen in the presence of cancer, the average 1-year survival rate is less than 30%. The prognosis is excellent for many of the other causes of hypercalcemia, if the underlying cause is diagnosed and treated.
