Survival of breast cancer based on stageUploader: Aranos 4 years ago Subscribe 2
Prognostic and predictive factors are often discussed together. The following are prognostic and predictive factors for breast cancer when it is first found and diagnosed. A predictive factor influences how a cancer will respond to a certain treatment. Breast cancer that has spread to lymph nodes has a higher risk of coming back and a less favourable prognosis than breast cancer that has not spread to the lymph nodes. This recent study clearly demonstrates that the longer the time span since the primary prognosis and treatment to the recurrence, the better the long-term prognosis. It is still useful, with a lot of information.
