Generally speaking : Stage 3 ten year overall survival is about 60%.

See your oncologisf: For something as personal as this, this should really be answered or discussed with your oncologist. Your information is helpful but there are so many more details that need to be known that can't be discussed here. Good luck.

I agree, each patient's situation is different and your oncologist is the best person to address it. In principle, however, I would say that a patient with ER+ HER2 negative, stage IIIC cancer would normally be offered chemo (the number of rounds depend on the program), radiation, and hormone therapy. I wish you the best. Fight well.
