Hi. I used a software program called Adjuvant Online to calculate your mother's prognosis, using most of the data you've provided. To be able to perform the calculation, I had to make assumptions on some information you were not able to give. First, I just assumed that your mother's over 60 years old. I also assumed that she has average health for her age. Anyway, here are the estimated prognoses:
10 year survival rate:
If with no chemotherapy/hormonal treatment: 30.1%
If with hormonal treatment (aromatase inhibitor) alone: 42%
If with chemotherapy and hormonal treatment: 50.4%
10 year relapse risk:
If with no chemotherapy/hormonal treatment: 12.8% without relapse at 10 years
If with hormonal treatment (aromatase inhibitor) alone: 37.5% without relapse
If with chemotherapy and hormonal treatment: 47.7% without relapse
Thanks for responding. My mother is in average health and she just turned 67 years old. I checked to adjunt online link and they stated that the breast cancer info was not released. Perhaps I missed something. I am also researching more information on her particular stage as, by the ACS there is not much info on stage IIIc breast cancer. If you have any additional links that you feel would be useful for research, please let me know.
Thanks again for your response.
Can uou talk to her doctor?
I can talk to the doctor, but they will not give the prognosis without her there and she will not listen to it so I am at a loss.
