Hello there. This is not a Dr Phil Website I am not really sure what your question is

1. For stage 1 breast cancer, hormone therapy can be given following chemo if the cancer was ER/PR positive

2. Targeted therapy can be given if the cancer was HER2 positive

3. Survival rate is close to 100 percent, you will need to see your Dr every 6-12 months. Do a monthly self breast exam and have a mammogram every 6-12 months.
