What are the chances of developing breast cancer after having stage II nshl?

Possibly increased. I assume by nshl you mean nodular sclerosing hodgkins lymphoma. Your risk of breast cancer is higher than normal if you received radiation therapy to your mediastinum (chest) as part of treatment. The younger you are and the higher the radiation dose, the higher your risk. Breast MRI is recommended for breast cancer screening in women who have received mediastinal radiation.
1/8 times 15% One out of every eight women will develop breast cancer over their lifetime. Since you likely took chemotherapy and radiation your risk can raise by 10 to 15 percent over this amount. So every woman has a 12 percent chance of breast cancer and yours may be 14 percent.

Collage of answers. Three respected colleagues have answered this slightly differently but all are correct. Prevention and early detection (healthy lifestyle, self exams -i'm also old fashioned- mammos, etc.) are vital. If you get it, you need good doctors.

What are the chances of breast cancer spreading to other parts of the body?

Good. Breast Cancer like all malignancies is programmed to spread. When first appearing as a lesion growing out of the milk duct, it remains in-situ for a period of time because clones or populations that spread havnt formed. As early mutations occur new populations of cells will leave the primary to spread, so that the rule is: The earlier the diagnosis the better the chance of cure. Read more...

Odds in her favor. The chance for cure is quite high for early or even intermediate-stage breast cancer. Some may require only local rx (surgery+/-radiation rx), others may need chemotherapy as well; this can take the form of a simple pill or traditional IV therapy.
