Dear Statalist

Can anyone provide some guidance on how to perform a conditional
survival analysis using STATA for patients in a cancer registry who
enter the sample on their date of diagnosis. During the 10 year follow
up, where date of death is not available we assume survival. I would
like to see how probability of survival changes for different
categories of patients (age, stage, treatment received) if they
survive 1 year after diagnosis, then 2 years after, then 3 etc.

I would be grateful for some advice on appropriate ways to do this as
I'm newish to STATA and very new to survival analyses.

Many thanks in advance
