Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

It depends on hormone receptor status, HER2status, age and overall health of patient. Also—since some women are cured of this disease and others aren't—it depends on factors of which medical science is now ignorant. ...Read more
Depends: There are many kinds of "lymph node cancers" (lymphoma). Hodkin's vs. Non hodkin's, aggressive vs slow growing.

What is the prognosis and survival rate for squamous cell carcinoma in the jawbone with only a couple of small lymph nodes involved?
Mandibular SCC: Head/ neck carcinomas including mandibular (jaw bone) squamous cell are staged according to size and lymph node involvement. This staging is the most important factor in survival and prognosis. Prognosis is improved with adequate surgery (complete removal with negative margins) and lymph node dissection. Radiation is possibly used to improve local recurrence rates. See a head and neck surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

His cancer may take Chemotherapy, radiotherapy in addition to surgery to control. The prognosis depends on the status of neck nodes in terms of spread of Cancer.If the nodes are involved by tumor, then he has a bigger problem than otherwise. But he has a 50/50 chance of Cure. ...Read more
