Advanced breast cancer and its prevention by screening.
In discussions on breast cancer screening, much attention has been focussed on the possible morbidity generated by screening.
Favourable effects like the prevention of advanced disease seem underestimated, probably because quantification is that difficult.
To analyse the amount of care and treatment given to women with advanced breast cancer, we report on patients followed from first recurrence until death using patients files and national sources.
A random sample of 60 female cases from computerised registries of two cancer centres and a sample of 20 cases from a non-computerised hospital registry was taken.
