Survival in breast cancer depends upon the extent of spread, of stage. Cancers that are found early are often localized to the breast. According to the American Cancer Society, women with early stage (stage 1) breast cancer have a 5-year survival rate of 100%. Women with cancer that has spread to distant sites in the body (stage 4) have only a 20% chance of surviving 5 years; but this rate can improve as advances are made in treatment.
