What is the survival of invasive ductal carcinoma stage 2?

High

Open-uri20120703-6948-y1tc6q
Published 5-yr survival rates are 81% for IIa and 84% for IIb breast CA. Keep in mind this includes mortality from other causes and reflects patients treated almost a decade ago. For more info...http://www.cancer.org/Cancer/BreastCancer/DetailedGuide/breast-cancer-survival-by-stage

cancer is dangerous, meaning it can lead to death even if all the right things are done. So, I'd need more deatils to help put in perspective the danger and risk: age, size, nodes +/-, ER, PR, her-2-neu status. Focus on positive after realizing the danger

How fast does invasive ductal carcinoma spread?

It depends

Breast_cancer
Tumors that are grade 3, or that have a high "proliferation rate", may spread more quickly than grade 1 or 2. Tumors that are ER- (estrogen receptor negative) or HER2+ spread more quickly than other types. Inflammatory breast cancer of any type can spread in days; the other types of invasive ductal carcinoma generally take months.

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

How fast could invasive ductal carcinoma metastasis?

Highly Variable

Breast_cancer
The risk of breast cancer growing outside of the breast is most dependent on the aggressiveness of the cancer and the stage at diagnosis; it is less related to the TYPE of breast cancer (ductal, lobular,etc). While metastatic disease may be present at the time of diagnosis, a majority of breast cancer patients NEVER develop metastases.

What is the rate of survival for stage 3 invasive ductal carcinoma?

More than 50%

Stringio
This is a hard question. Invasive ductal carcinoma is the most common type of breast cancer. It depends on whether it's stage3a, b or c, and the time of survival. At 5 years after diagnosis, 50-60% of women with stage 3 breast cancer are alive. Other factors are age, receptor status of the tumor, number of lymph nodes involved, and treatment. Remember that survival is improving all the time!

Breast_cancer
Most women with Localized breast cancer do very well and there is high cure rate. Overall 75%-80% of breast cancers are curable. But you need to know what stage of cancer it is? You should also know what subtype(there are 3 different types) of Breast Cancer it is. Further there is the matter of what type of adjuvant therapy(post surgery treatment) was used. I'am sure your oncologist can answeryr

Is invasive lobular carcinoma the same as invasive ductal carcinoma?

Different

Cancer
Lobular carcinoma is less common and often does not form a lump. Please see these sites for more information. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/invasive-lobular-carcinoma/DS01063 http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/breast-cancer/DS00328

How fast does invasive ductal carcinoma begin metastasis?

Variable

Open-uri20120703-22530-n670ud
It is well-established that cancer survival is related to timing of diagnosis, however, it's not that simple. Some aggressive cancers may spread very early and others may never regardless of timing. Furthermore, one's overall health (and immune system) may play a major role. Thankfully, most breast cancers are curable.

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

What is survival rate with invasive ductal carcinoma of breast?

Stage-Dependent

Open-uri20120703-30277-159vivo
Breast cancers are staged based upon the size of the cancer, lymph node or distant organ involvement, direct extension to the skin or chest wall muscles, and unique molecular features of the tumor. Published rates of 5-yr survival (http://www.cancer.org/Cancer/BreastCancer/DetailedGuide/breast-cancer-survival-by-stage) vary quite a bit based on these variables, between 15%-93%.

Dr. Andrew Turrisi answered:

Can be quick, but

Cancer
could be years or never. You do not mention: size; stage, nodes + or -, age, receptor status (ER, PR, Her-2-neu). Breast cancer treatment can effect chance of relapse. I find the questions about speed odd...The true answer is we do not know in an individual what will happen, and rely on group statistics to frame what we tell patients. I emphasize, that individual may not behave like a group.
