Hello and hope you are doing well.

It is difficult to get a straight answer, as it depends on many things. First, the confirmation of cancer by a biopsy. Next it depends on the stage at which it has been diagnosed and the histopathological evaluation of cells (type of cells).  

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
