WBreast Cancer Overview
Surival rates for breast cancer
Some people with cancer may want to know the survival rates for their type of cancer. Others may not find the numbers helpful, or may even not want to know them. Whether or not you want to read about survival rates is up to you. If you decide that you do not want to read about them, skip to the next section.

The 5-year survival rate refers to the percentage of patients who live at least 5 years after their cancer is found. Of course, many people live much longer than 5 years.

The odds of surviving breast cancer are strongly tied to how early it is found. According to the American Cancer Society, HUNDRED % of women with Stage ONE breast cancer live at least five years, compared to women without cancer and many women in this group remain cancer-free for good. The more advanced the cancer, the lower this figure becomes. By Stage four, the five-year relative survival rate declines to twenty%. But these rates can improve as more effective treatments are found.

Early detection and treatment no problem, if detection at a very late stage then it may require removal of the affected breast and at times death also!!!
