In brief: Stage-Dependent

Breast cancers are staged based upon the size of the cancer, lymph node or distant organ involvement, and unique molecular features of the tumor. Published rates of 5-yr survival (http://www.
Cancer.Org/cancer/breastcancer/detailedguide/breast-cancer-survival-by-stage) vary quite a bit based on these variables, between 15%-93%. The type of cancer (ductal, lobular, etc) doesn't impact survival.
