Depends on SO many things, Nichola - this is an impossible quesiton to answer. Statistically, about four of five women survive breast cancer, but your own chance of recurrence may range from 0% (you're cured), to much higher, if your cancer has metastasized. Please speak to your doctor about your own personal situation - he or she can surely discuss this with you. Good luck - PJH
