In brief: Variable

5-year breast cancer survival rates are dependent upon the cancer stage, varying from almost 100% for DCIS (stage 0) to less than 20% for metastatic disease (stage 4).
Furthermore, cancer survival is dependent upon the response to chemotherapy. Of note, breast cancer survival has increased over the past decade in the US.

In brief: Depends

Our hope is that everyone will be diagnosed with breast cancer at an early stage and be treated sucessfully.
Unfortunately, many women still do not get mammograms and are detected with cancer at late stages. The odds of dying depend on the stage of the breast cancer and response to treatment. Do not think about dying, shift your thoughts to surviving and beating cancer.
