It depends.: Your chance for cure or prognosis is primarily dependent on your stage of cancer rather than the type (lobular, ductal, etc.). The cancer stage is based on the status of your axillary (sentinel) lymph nodes, the size of the cancer, and tumor-specific factors such as estrogen receptor, Progesterone receptor, her2/neu receptor, tumor grade, oncotype-dx score, etc.
