Possible...: It all depends on the pathology report (her2 status..) and treatment provided. No guarantees in life but ! not knowing all the details, she has at least more than 60% chance of cure. Be postive. Encourage her, continue hormonal teatement for at least 5 years. Discuss the case with the oncologist who has all the information and treatment in front of him. Do not be shy. Thanks for asking.

Yes: While a mastectomy will decrease your risk of breast cancer recurring, it does not make it 0%. It important to have regular follow up visits with your medical oncologist and surgical oncologist.
