Can Breast Cancer Be Cured?

Question: Can breast cancer be cured?

Answer: Breast cancer can be cured. In fact we cure three-quarters of breast cancer; the problem is when somebody is diagnosed with breast cancer, we can't tell that woman that she is cured, until she dies at 95 of something else. So, we know we cure breast cancer, but we never know if any one particular person is cured at any one time.
