I have a question I don't know how to solve correctly, hope you can help me.
Let's say I have something bad, a cancer or something, and I have each year 1 chance between 750 of dying. The more years I live with the cancer, the more years I am exposed to death.
I want to calculate what chances of dying I have if I live, let's say, 10 years. I know that the more years I live with cancer, the more chances I have to die, but how to calculate them exactly?
I know that is isn't just summing up the chances per year, because if I have a 50% chance of dying, that don't means that in 2 years I'm going to die for sure.
PD: I don't have something bad, is for calculating chances of dying because of smoking, travelling by car, plane, etc...
