Using data from the Geneva Cancer Registry, we found that in —, breast cancer incidence in women aged 25—39 years increased by Health professionals and patient support groups in Geneva, Switzerland, have recently expressed concern about an apparently increasing number of very young breast cancer patients. Owing to the average 2-year delay in cancer registration, we have only now been able to investigate this observation using incidence data up to the year among women residents in Geneva.
Hannah Weir talks about her work to project trends in new cancer cases and deaths to the year Rates for many cancers are decreasing or stabilizing, but the number of cancer cases and deaths will continue to increase. Over the next decade, we expect cancer incidence rates to stay about the same, but the number of new cancer cases to go up, mostly because of an aging white population and a growing black population.

The variables analyzed were. Among neoplasm, breast cancer is the second most frequent type in the world and the most common among women, not considering non-melanoma skin neoplasms. Cancer in general has been widely considered a disease of developed countries with large financial resources.
In the first six months of this year, 1. Cancer accounts for one quarter of female mortality. This proportion has been fairly stable over the past decade, but mortality due to the various types of cancer has shifted considerably. Ten years ago, breast cancer accounted for more than one quarter of female cancer deaths, whereas lung cancer accounted for one tenth.
The up-dated posts that I have recently made on breast cancer survival statistics and incidence rates are a guide only. The facts, figures, graphs and bar charts are derived from statistics for large amounts of women over many years. It can NOT be stressed enough that each case is individual and there are many complex and interlinked factors that affect the prognosis and outcome.
