(Expected Outcome of the Disease) The outcome for breast cancer varies according to whether the cancer is diagnosed early or when it's more advanced. The earlier it's diagnosed, smaller
it is, and lower the chance it's spread, the better off you will be. Stages Stage 1- 90% of women lived more than 5 years,while 85% of women lived more than 10 years.
Stage 2- 70% of women lived more than 5 years, while 60% of women lived more than 10 years.
Stage 3- 50% of women lived more than 5 years, while 40% of women lived more than 10 years.
Stage 4- 13% of women lived more than 5 years, while 10% of women lived more than 10 years. Diagnosis Breast Cancer is diagnosed when a lump or change in the breast is found, or when an abnormal area is seen on a mammogram. Most times they aren't cancerous.

The chromosome it is found on is Chromosome 13 & 17. Determining if You're a Carrier Genetic Testing- Process of using medical tests to look for changes (mutations) in a persons gene or chromosomes. Many are used today, but more are developing. Treatments There are many treatments for the disease, but the most commonly known are:
Breast Reconstruction
Radiation Therapy
Chemotherapy Drugs
