Equal survival: The survival rates for breast conservation and mastectomy are the same. There is a slightly higher rate of local recurrence for breast conservation (with radiation it should be <1% per year out to 10 years) but this does not impact survival which is the most important consideration of any cancer treatment. ...Read more

What is the her2- positive breast cancer survival rate?

What is the her2- positive breast cancer survival rate?

Very high!: The five year survival rate for all breast cancer is over 90%. Her2+ cancers used to have the worst prognosis, but Herceptin (trastuzumab) changed that. Now they have a very good prognosis if they are caught at an early stage (stage 1 or 2). The stage really determines the prognosis, so without that information I can't give you a number. But I am happy for my patients with a her2+ cancer-- many treatments! ...Read more

Stage 2B idc breast cancer, triple positive. Us shows 6mm thyroid nodule with calcifications next to carotid. Should I insist on fine needle biopsy?

Depends: This condition is unrelated to your breast cancer history. Ask your doctor what concerns or not are registered by the radiologists. Some type of thyroid calcifications are more likely to be benign. 6mm thyroid nodule is small & need to know risks of trying biopsy near carotid artery too. The doctor who ordered the study would know much more to help you than is able to be reported here. ...Read more
