I've been working on gene mutation survival analysis, the data downloaded&merged from TCGA somatic mutation file (MAF) is:

data of clinical feature and mutation genes SRCAP ZFHX4 AMER1 PCDHB8 AHNAK2 ... are genes selected by the univariate KM survival& log-rank test, by dividing patient to Wt and Mutate group based on gene mutate status and then order the p-values, choose p=0.05 as the threshold. Now I need to take account of all clinical features into the analysis along with these genes:

Surv(futime, fustat)~ gender+age+project+subtype+race_group+stage_group+SRCAP+ZFHX4+AMER1+PCDHB8+AHNAK2+DNAH5+NALCN+PAPPA+PCDH17+RELN+UGGT2+HYDIN

and the result:

                      coef  exp(coef)   se(coef)  robust se      z Pr(>|z|)

I'm not convinced about the whole procedure and the result, how the "Stage" factor is not important to survival chance? besides, some gene's hazard ratio is incredible high(RELNWT :9.155e+08 ) . not sure if the reason is the sparse & binary feature of mutation data.

what's is the proper way to preform survival analysis based on mutation data? really need an explanation....thanks.
