DATA: Data were date of birth, mode of diagnosis, pathology (size, lymph node status, grade, type, lympho-vascular invasion and hormone receptor) and therapies and outcome measures: first local, regional or distant recurrences, contralateral primary, date and cause of death.
TUMOUR CHARACTERISTICS: Mean diameter 1.8 cm, 66% lymph node negative, 24% 1-3 lymph nodes involved and 10% had 4 or more involved. Grade 1, 29%; Grade 2, 41%; and Grade 3, 30%. Polynomial relationships were established between grade, stage and size. Seventy-five percent were oestrogen receptor (ER) positive. ER closely related to grade.
OUTCOMES: Overall Survival was 89% at 5 years from diagnosis, 80% 10 years and 73% 15 years; Breast Cancer-Specific survivals were 91%, 84% and 79%. Survival strongly related to the Nottingham Prognostic Index (NPI). Cases detected at screening had 84% 10-year survival, those presenting symptomatically 76%. ER positive cases treated with adjuvant hormone therapy had a reduction in risk of death of 13% over those not receiving adjuvant therapy (p=0.000). ER negative cases treated with chemotherapy showed a risk reduction of 23% over those not receiving chemotherapy (p=0.000).
