It is possible, but it needs to be in the early stages of breast cancer. And, Herceptin (the commonly used drugs for breast cancer) will not always work ON IT's OWN for women. So, it is ultimately at the discretion of the doctor if he/she feels that it is the best choice for the patient.

RE : Can breast cancer be cured with drugs alone?
Hi,
If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer your doctor will most likely prescribe drugs as part of your treatment. In some patients, medications are used without surgery, though you most likely will take breast cancer drugs in conjunction with, and following your other treatments. Drug therapy is intended to stop cancer cells from dividing into new cells, and spreading to other parts of the body. The most common drug used in breast cancer therapy is tamoxifen. Because breast cancer medication can increase the risk of other cancers, carefully follow your doctor's advice about using prescribed drugs and getting additional cancer screening tests.
