Prognosis for Invasive breast cancer
Prognosis for Invasive breast cancer:
Survival in breast cancer depends on multiple social, biologic, and independent patient factors. Tumor size clearly is associated with higher mortality. Lesions greater than 5.0 cm were associated with a 50-60% 20-year survival rate compared to those less than 1 cm, which had a 93-98% 20-year survival rate.
