In brief: A large majority
According to the american cancer society, 90% of all women with newly diagnosed breast cancer will be alive at 5 years.
However, individual survival depends on the cancer stage with more than 95% of localized breast cancer, approximately 85% of regional breast cancer and only approximatley 25% of advanced breast cancer will be alive at 5 years.

In brief: Depends
This is a difficult question to answer. Survival depends on stage, aggressive of the tumor, and any comorbitities that the patient may have.
Early detection leads to the best chance of a cure making yearly mammograms and clinical breast exams important.
