In brief: High

Published 5-yr survival rates are 81% for iia and 84% for iib breast ca.
Keep in mind this includes mortality from other causes and reflects patients treated almost a decade ago. For more info...http://www.cancer.org/cancer/breastcancer/detailedguide/breast-cancer-survival-by-stage.

In brief: Very good

Across the board the 5 year survival rate of stage ii invasive ductal cancer of the breast is about 86%.
Not all stage ii cancers are the same and many other factors help to predict better or poorer outcomes such as tumor grade, # of positive lymph nodes, estrogen receptor status, her2neu status, etc. A score called oncotype DX based on genetic profiling of the cancer helps define prognosis also.
