Prognosis of Breast Cancer

Prognosis

Breast cancer is the second most lethal cancer in women. Several factors are used to determine the risk for recurrence and the likelihood of successful treatment. They include:

  • Location of the tumor and how far it has spread
  • Whether the tumor is hormone receptor-positive or -negative
  • Tumor markers
  • Gene expression
  • Tumor size and shape
  • Rate of cell division
