What is the survival rate of patients with invasive lobular carcinoma?

Stage-Dependent. Breast cancers are staged based upon the size of the cancer, lymph node or distant organ involvement, direct extension to the skin or chest wall muscles, 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%.
Good. It is essentially the same as the more common invasive ductal carcinoma. Survival is dictated by tumor size, presence of cancer in lymph nodes, receptors (estrogen, progesterone, and her-2) and mol;ecular features (oncotype score, ki-67, etc.) as well as your age and other medical problems.
