Few studies have addressed longer-term survival for breast cancer in European women. We have made predictions of ten-year survival for European women diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000-2002. Data for 114,312 adult women (15-99 years) diagnosed with a first primary malignant cancer of the breast during 2000-2002 were collected in the EUROCARE-4 study from 24 population-based cancer registries in 14 European countries. We estimated relative survival at one, five and ten years after diagnosis for women who were alive at some point during 2000-2002, using the period approach. We also estimated ten-year survival conditional on survival to one and five years after diagnosis. Ten-year survival exceeded 70% in most regions, but was only 54% in Eastern Europe, with the highest value in Northern Europe (about 75%). Ten-year survival conditional on survival for one year was 2%-6% higher than ten-year survival in all European regions, and geographic differences were smaller. Ten-year survival for women who survived at least five years was 88% overall, with the lowest figure in Eastern Europe (79%) and the highest in the UK (91%). Women aged 50-69 years had higher overall survival than older and younger women (79%). Six cancer registries had adequate information on stage at diagnosis; in these jurisdictions, 10-year survival was 89% for local, 62% for regional and 10% for metastatic disease. Data on stage are not collected routinely or consistently, yet these data are essential for meaningful comparison of population-based survival, which provides vital information for improving breast cancer control. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
