General question. What is the 5 year. Survival of non-metastasised breast cancer if you only had a double mastectomy and no chemo and no radiation?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

Not enough information.
Depends on tnm staging. Treatment decisions based on that as well as biomarkers - er, pr, her2/neu. The absolute risk reduction provided by chemotherapy and/or hormonal therapy can then be individualized. On useful online tool is adjuvant! online. That assumes adequate local control - eg surgery +/- radiation.
