In brief: Breast Cancer.

Breast cancer, even in both breasts, can be cured.
It is difficult to give survival information without knowing stage and more details. But, this can be answered by your oncologist.

Agree with Dr. S. Also, your oncologist should discuss BRCA testing.

In brief: BREAST CANCER

The survival of this 42 years old patient is good as long as it is detected early, rx like chemo or radiation given, or oral rx like Nolvadex (tamoxifen) given x few years.
No metastasis or adequate rx by oncologist. That is the reason why we do yearly mammogram for DX and rx.
