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
Depends: Survival rates depend on multiple factors; age, response to treatment, stage of disease, your overall health. This is a conversation best had with your medical oncologist. ...Read more
32 YO, triple positive, grade 3, stage 1B breast cancer. TCH chemotherphy, had dbl mastectomy. What is survival rate?
Are you sure your breast cancer was triple positive (or was it triple Negative)???
TCH is commonly used chemotherapy for triple negative, so please double check and let us know. Then we can give you survival figures. In general, small tumors (Stage 1 and stage 2) have very good survival rate and high cure rates. ...Read more
What are the survival rates for the various types of breast cancer surgeries? Does the type of surgery affect whether the cancer will reappear?
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 are the survival rates for a stage three breast cancer patient? Going to chemo and following doctor orders. And what to expect. Symptoms etc..
Ask your oncologist: Most women with breast cancer do very well. Yet stage 3 breast cancer does carry risk of relapse despite good treatments. So be alert and follow instructions and remain under supervision of your doctor (oncologist) for 5-10 years. ...Read more
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
Survival rate for triple neg receptors for early stage breast cancer after chemo treatment? No lymph nodes involve, stage 1b, grade 2, mastec done
Excellent: According to adjuvant online (www. Adjuvantonline. Com), you have about an 82% 10 yr survival rate based on your specific information provided. This is only an estimate since there are details I do not have such as type of chemotherapy being used. For triple negative breast cancer, these survival rates are quite excellent. ...Read more
Hysterectomy? Should I remove the ovaries? I had triple positive breast cancer five years ago. Or just have an oblation? I have three week period
Why?: Are you asking because you are concerned about ovarian cancer risk or about reducing the risk of breast cancer recurrence? Either way, more info is needed (stage, treatment, family history, etc.). I suggest you talk to your oncologist and go over the risks of recurrence of the cancer you had, risk of a second breast primary, and risk of ovarian cancer. Best to you. ...Read more
What is longterm prognosis for grade 3, stage 1b, triple positive breast cancer, double mastectomy and 6 treatments of TCH with one year of herceptin, (trastuzumab)?
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
Good: Whatever your age, the odds of surviving breast cancer overall are good! The majority of women survive breast cancer. What matters more than your age is your type of breast cancer, and the stage at diagnosis. If you have stage I cancer, your odds of dying from breast cancer are very low. It's more likely you will die from something else. But please ask your doctor this question! ...Read more
Around 50% at 5 year: Stage iiic reflects patients who have aggressive lymph node disease. They cannot realistically be cured with surgery alone. Nevertheless, about 50% of women diagnosed in 2002 survived 5 years according to national cancer database statistics. Prognosis may be even better today as treatment of each patient is more specifically targeted on the basis of the biology of these aggressive tumors. ...Read more
Breast cancer risk:
20 percent lower if the first birth was at age 20, 10 percent lower for first birth at age 25, and 5 percent higher if the first birth was at age 35.
The risk for a nulliparous woman is similar to that of a woman with a first full term birth at age 30. ...Read more
It Varies: 5-year breast cancer survival rates are dependent upon the cancer stage, varying from almost 100% for dcis (stage 0) to less than 20% for metastatic disease (stage 4). Furthermore, cancer survival is dependent upon the response to chemotherapy. Of note, breast cancer survival has increased over the past decade in the us. ...Read more
Metastatis breast cancer stage IV. What are the chances of survival. Already gone six sittings of chemo..
Breast ca stage IV: Need more information. Where the metastases are. Only bone metastases do better than soft tissue metastases. What is the ER an PR, what is the Her2 status. There are many treatments available now. Keep fighting, and you will win. ...Read more
Depends on Stage, etc: Breast cancers vary a lot from one person to the next. Features that help predict how aggressive any cancer is include it's size, the presence of spread to adj. Lymph nodes or distant organs, specific proteins that are found on some cancers (estrogen-, progesterone-, her2/neu receptors), the grade of the tumor, the type of breast cancer, etc. In general, when caught early, we have high cure rates. ...Read more
The hormone levels of a younger woman are high and can affect the breast cancer and treatments.
the behavior of cancers in younger people in general behave more aggressively because the blood supply, metabolism etc are more active in younger people.
it depends upon the biology of the tumor, the staging, the genetics. Early detection is a major factor in long term survival. ...Read more
Invasive refers to the tumor cells invading through the originating structure [usually the milk duct in breast cancer] and developing the ability to attract more blood supply and grow bigger. It also means it can spread to other parts of body.
From am ca society:
2001-2002 stage & 5-year survival rate: 0-93%; i-88%; iia- 81%; iib- 74%; iiia- 67%; iiib- 41%*; iiic; 49%*; iv- 15%;. ...Read more

More than 50%: 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! ...Read more

Approximately 80%: The exact answer to this question depends on a number of factors: actual tumor size, level of estrogen expression, number of nodes involved, medications given and individual response to medications. Lifestyle factors are also key. 80% 5-year survival comes from pooled data from a variety of patients. It's best to ask you medical oncologist to calculate your survival based upon your personal data ...Read more
What is the survival rate for a 46 yr old pt with stage 2B invasive lobular breast cancer w/node involvement?
Better than 85%: Invasive lobular carcinoma begins in the milk-producing glands (lobules) of the breast the cells having broken out of the lobule where they began and in Stage IIB have spread to regional lymph nodes. It typically doesn't form a lump, but often causes a fullness in one part of the breast. They tend to have more hormone-receptor–positive tumors, lower nuclear grade and survival better than 85% ...Read more
Occurs when glandular cells lining the milk ducts and lobules of the human breast begin to grow in an unregulated manner. Often curable if found early and treated effectively with surgery, hormonal therapy, chemotherapy and targeted therapy, or a combination thereof. Early detection before the malignancy becomes large enough to be felt depends on mammography/sonography and MRI imaging of the breast ...Read more
Most breast cancers are carcinomas. This is a type of breast cancer. These cancers start in the cells that line organs and tissues. In fact, breast cancers are often a type of carcinoma called adenocarcinoma, which starts in cells that make glands (glandular tissue). Breast adenocarcinomas start in the ducts (the milk ducts) or ...Read more
