Prognosis: Prognosis of the breast cancer will depend on the stage of the cancer, the biology of the cancer and treatment received. What is the stage? And what is the molecular type of cancer? Er/pr/her2neu? Also with brca 1 her risk to have ovarian cancer will be significant. It is recommended for her also to have both ovaries, tubes and uterus removed to prevent ovarian cancer. Close surveillance is needed.
