What is the survival rate for breast cancer?

A question from DANNYBOY: What is the survival rate for breast cancer?
A friend of my mom’s died of breast cancer a few days ago. If that weren’t bad enough, ANOTHER friend of my mom’s, who is also the mother of a friend of mine, recently got diagnosed with breast cancer. And its so sad because its Christmas time. That poor family has been through so much…

What is the survival rate for breast cancer? Does anyone have any statistics or percentages?

The best answer:

Answer by J B
No one can give you numbers because of the different variables that are present with any diagnosis such as breast cancer. Was it found early, has it spread to the lymph nodes, are they going to do a lumpectomy or total masectomy, what kind of cancer cells are present. Will chemo or radiation be needed. All of these factors go into determining how to treat breast cancer so no one can give you a survival rate until she has been through all of this.

Question by Believe me: Will Anti-perspirant and Deodorant will cause breast cancer in the long run?
Maybe you’ve seen this in an email or question:

Have you heard anything about this? If not please becareful about using too much of that stuff, especially anti-pers. It’s totally unnatural to let your body stop sweating. I stop using any of anti-pers/deodorant few years ago and I never smell. Think about the old days when there was no such thing how did our ancestors do with them deodorant/anti-pers. If you need to use go buy the natural deodorant from health store but never use anti-pers. Any feedback is welcome.
PracticalWizard: That’s because your body needs to sweat and you’re trying to stop it by using man made chemical garbage. Let your body do it’s thing. Go get deodorant but not anti-pers. Get the natural kind. Like I said I don’t need it and I never smell and no ones knows that I don’t use any.
Janice: Oh yes! I have all kinds of friends and we talk about this they were all surprised to know that I dont’ use any. This one friend with sensitive nose still couldn’t tell that I dont’ use any. He was shocked that when I told him I didn’t use any.
Erin: Our armpits are sensitive and very close to the lymph nodes and it perspires hormones more so than other body area that I know of. So obviously it can cause more damage.

A question from Blondie: Is it possible to get breast cancer at 14? What are the symptoms?
I have been having pain in my left breast & think I have felt bumps before. What are other symptoms?

No 1 answer:

Answer by SJS
I wouldn’t immediately jump to that conclusion. It is possible, but hormones can make them ache, especialy during your period, or if you were somehow pregnant. But see a doc if you want to be sure. It can never hurt, right?
