Can you live a long life after stage 1 breast cancer? Overall survival rates
This would mean 90 percent of women diagnosed with stage I breast cancer survive at least 5 years beyond diagnosis. (Most of these women would live much longer than 5 years past their diagnoses.) Overall survival rates vary by breast cancer stage.
How often does stage 1 breast cancer come back? It can depend on characteristics of your breast cancer like hormone receptor status and size of the tumor. Local recurrence is more common, and about 7% to 11% of women with early-stage breast cancer have a local recurrence within the first five years.
Is it possible to live for 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 is the 30 year survival rate for breast cancer? The lowest overall rate of cancer survival for females diagnosed during 2000-2005 was in those aged 25-29 years (72% 5-year relative survival), followed by 20- to 24-year-olds and 30- to 34-year-olds (75% and 76%, respectively) and 35- to 39-year-olds (80%) (Figure 5).
