How Many Years Of Life Expectancy After An Early Stage Breast Cancer Surgery?
Hello, I want to ask a few days ago my mother did an examination related to a lump from one of her breasts, after the lab results turned out there was a cancer cell in one of her breasts, I panicked and confused whether for the initial stage of breast cancer after surgery would be completely healed? and what will be able to have a relatively long life like before getting cancer? thanks
Good evening, thanks for the question
In cases of malignancy, the patient's prognosis or cure rate is assessed by the term 5 years survival rates, which is an estimate of the percentage of patients who can survive the next 5 years after cancer is detected early. This figure is an estimate from studies that have been done before, where some patients may survive longer. The 5 years survival rates are determined by the stage of the disease when it is detected early. The lower the stage of the disease when detected early the better life condition.
Based on the National Cancer Institute the 5 years survival rates in breast cancer are:
Stage 0: 100%
Stage I: 100%
Stage II: 93%
Stage III: 72%
Stage IV: 22%
If it is detected early in the early stages of cancer then the 5 year survival rates are still very high, which means the possibility of recovery will also be better with the right treatment. Therefore do not despair and do treatment according to the instructions of doctors who are experts in their fields as part of efforts to get healing.
That's all, hope you can help.
