Population-based breast cancer survival : mammographic screening activities in central Italy.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect on 5-year survival of patients with invasive breast cancer relative to demographic and clinical variables (age, residence, and disease diffusion) and to early diagnostic procedures performed in the area.
The observed (Kaplan-Meier method) and relative 5-year survival in 1263 patients with invasive breast cancer in the Province of Florence, Italy, between 1985-1986 (source : Tuscany Cancer Registry) are presented.
The results were compared with those of other European areas and of the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program.
