Can you live a long life after stage 2 breast cancer? Relative survival rates
This would mean women with stage II breast cancer were, on average, 85 percent as likely to live 5 years beyond their diagnosis as women in the general population. Say, the 5-year relative survival rate for women with stage I breast cancer was 100 percent.
