Statistics from the Swedish National Cancer Registry based on all 110,658 cases of invasive breast cancer during the 31-year period 1958-1988 were analysed.
Age-specific incidence rates increased over successive calendar periods.
The average annual increase in the age-standardised incidence rate was 1.3%, with the greatest percentage changes among the youngest age groups.
During the latter half of the study period, the rates of increase tended to diminish in the youngest age groups and even reversed significantly among women from 75 years of age.
In analyses using age-period-cohort models, the best fit of the cancer incidence data was found for the full model which simultaneously considered the effects of age, period and cohort.
