What is life expectancy for breast cancer?
|SEER Stage||5-year Relative Survival Rate|
|All SEER stages combined||90%|
Can you live 20 years after breast cancer? Many people with localized or regional breast cancer survive for 20 years or longer after receiving a diagnosis and treatment. It is rare for someone with distant breast cancer to live for 20 years. However, scientists are continuing to improve treatments for distant breast cancer.
What percentage of breast cancer is fatal? Trends in breast cancer deaths
The chance that a woman will die from breast cancer is about 1 in 39 (about 2.6%). Since 2007, breast cancer death rates have been steady in women younger than 50, but have continued to decrease in older women.
Which breast cancer has the highest survival rate? Overall survival rates
(Most of these women would live much longer than 5 years past their diagnoses.) Overall survival rates vary by breast cancer stage. People diagnosed with stage 0, I or II breast cancers tend to have higher overall survival rates than people diagnosed with stage III or IV breast cancers.
