The chances for survival after infiltrating ductal carcinoma depend on each person’s diagnosis and treatment.
For example, people diagnosed with early breast cancer have a better prognosis than those diagnosed with more advanced 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.
Based on individual markers and prognostic factors, including the staging of your tumor, your physician will work to give you a prognosis.
