What is the survival rate of metastatic breast cancer to other organs?

In brief: Highly variable

Everyone is different, responds to treatments differently, has different cell types & different underlying medical conditions.
Depends if bone or lung or liver involvement. Some patients can live for years & others may not. The patient's treating oncologist would be able to answer much better.

In brief: 2 to 5 years

Metastatic breast cancer, in general has good treatments which can prolong life for several years.
The average survival is between 2-3 years but one in 4 patiets (25%)is expected to be alive over 5 years or longer. Some women can live with it for 10+ years provided they are under the care of a breast cancer specilalist (good medical oncologist).
