Cancer

Country of origin: USA

We used to consider the 5-year mark of relapse-free survival the hallmark of successful anticancer treatment. If it didn't come back by then, the patient was in the clear, right? Unfortunately, the 5-year time point is not a particularly good one for breast cancer, and this is especially true when we consider the various subtypes of breast cancer. ER+ breast cancer has a long natural history, with over half of the recurrence events occurring after 5 years.
