what percentage?

Hi, does anyone know what the percentage is for recurrence or new primary diagnosis, I had my original diagnosis 11 years ago, and got another primary in the opposite breast last november,

I never gave it a second thought with regards to ‘it’ coming back now I must admit after twice, it has got me thinking a bit!

Best wishes Liz x

Hi Liz

Don’t think overall averages are much help - it all depends on so manty different factors for each individual person.


I don’t think over all percentages are useful either it depends on too many factors. Grade, location, etc. I pushed my breast care surgeon to tell me even though he didn’t want to and he said my chances of staying clear for 10 years were 75% but it was for me only, not an overall percentage for everyone with breast cancer.
