Can breast cancer be cured?

"The authors suggest: “The current notion that BC is incurable appears to be based on an overestimate of the risk of disease progression. Although progression of BC continues with variable frequency, its overall frequency appears to be stable, particularly when compared with other cancers.” The authors state that “the survival of early metastatic BC may be improved by clinical, pathological, and treatment characterization of the tumor." - Anonymous Online Contributor
