Is breast cancer curable if caught early? Similar to stage 0, breast cancer at this stage is very treatable and survivable. When breast cancer is detected early, and is in the localized stage (there is no sign that the cancer has spread outside of the breast), the 5-year relative survival rate is 100%.
Can breast cancer be killed? Radiation treatments
Radiation uses high-energy rays (like x-rays) to kill cancer cells. This treatment may be used to kill any cancer cells that may be left in the breast, chest, or armpit after surgery. It can also be used in some areas outside the breast where cancer has spread.
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.
Can breast cancer be fully cured? There is no “natural” cure for breast cancer. Medical treatments are necessary to remove, shrink, or slow the growth of tumors.
