Is there a cure for breast cancer?

In brief: If it's caught early

Early breast cancers that are treated appropriately frequently don't recur--the definition of a cure.
Unfortunately, not all breast cancers are diagnosed early enough to cure.

In brief: Heck yea!

Patients with early stage breast cancer (especially stages 0 and 1) are very curable.
Folks with stage 2 cancers have a decent chance and those with stage 3 cancers have a fighting chance (although not that great) of being cured. Stage 4 cancers are usually considered incurable but under rare circumstances, and if treated aggressively, a precious few patients can be cured.
