In brief: Not trivial!

Breast cancer, is most commonly of the invasive ductal type.
Often there are mixed patterns with medullary or lobular histologies. Perhaps others as well. The most important factors however aren't mentioned here. Age, stage, grade, lymph node involvement all play a much more prognostic role at this point.
