Brief Answer:
Hello. Chances of cure are there

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I have seen the reports. So the disease appears to be localised and not advanced. Scan is suggestive of limited nodes involvement but the actual nodal disease can only be decided after surgery. She requires surgery follwed by radiation and chemotherapy. Definitely , her age is more , but still many patients are able to complete the treatment and there are chances of complete cure. This disease has good prognosis and there is nothng to worry.
Thanks and regards
