What is the survival rate of stage 1B breast cancer? The 5-year relative survival rate is 99%. Regional breast cancer has spread to nearby tissue or lymph nodes. This includes stage IB (pronounced “stage 1-B”), some IIA (“stage 2-A”), some IIB (“stage 2-B”), and all stage III (“stage 3”). The 5-year relative survival rate is 86%.
Can Stage 1B breast cancer spread? The stages help guide treatment and prognosis. Stage 1 breast cancer is confined to the area where abnormal cell division began. It has not spread yet to anywhere else in the breast or body.
What are the chances of stage 1B breast cancer returning? 99% for localized breast cancer. 86% for regional breast cancer. 27% for distant (metastatic) breast cancer.
Is Stage 1B cancer curable? Stage 1 is highly treatable, however, it does require treatment, typically surgery and often radiation, or a combination of the two. Additionally, you may consider hormone therapy, depending on the type of cancer cells found and your additional risk factors.
