Frequently Asked Questions

What is Stage 2 breast cancer survival rate?

The overall 5-year relative survival rate for stage 2 breast cancer is around 93% and the 10-year survival rate is estimated to be around 88%. It is important to note that many factors influence overall survival rates including the tumor risk group, treatment and lifestyle. Other factors such as ER/PR status and Her2 status also play a role in overall prognosis.

Overall no, stage 2 breast cancer is not typically considered advanced. Based on breast cancer staging guidelines (TNM) stage 2 breast cancer is considered early or localized, meaning the tumor size is small and contained to the breast or only a few lymph nodes in close proximity to the breast.  Stage 2b breast cancer, which has spread to local lymph nodes, may be considered to be locally advanced breast cancer.  

The risk of recurrence for Stage 2 breast cancer is lower than for stage 3 or 4 when considered more advanced. However there is a possibility that stage 2 breast cancer can recur either locally in the breast or nearby lymph nodes or to another spot in the body. The overall 5-year relative survival rate for stage 2 breast cancer is around 93% and the 10-year survival rate is estimated to be around 88%. It is important to note that many factors influence risk of recurrence including the tumor risk group, treatment and lifestyle. Other factors such as ER/PR status and Her2 status also play a role in overall prognosis.

It is important to note that many factors influence overall survival rates including the tumor risk group, treatment and lifestyle. Other factors such as ER/PR status and Her2 status also play a role in overall prognosis.

The primary treatment for stage 2 breast cancer is removal of the tumor via surgery. This can be done in one of two ways, breast conserving therapy is a partial mastectomy or lumpectomy which leaves the breast intact, or a full mastectomy may be performed. The choice of therapy is individual and depends on several factors including the size and location of the tumor within the breast, whether the lymph nodes are involved and patient goals of therapy.

Most people with stage 2 breast cancer will be offered chemotherapy either before or after surgery to help reduce the risk of recurrence. Several factors could influence the decision to pursue chemotherapy including tumor size, location of the tumor within the breast, the presence or absence of markers such as ER/PR and Her2, as well as individual prognostic scores from additional testing that may be performed.  According to the NCCN guidelines, adjuvant chemotherapy is generally recommended for most patients with Stage 3 breast cancer.
