Mexico, Later Diagnosis/Earlier Age

ABSTRACT: Breast carcinoma presents a decade earlier in Mexican women than in women in the United States or European countries

BACKGROUND: In Mexico, breast carcinoma is the second most frequent malignancy, representing 10.6% of all cases and 16.4% of all cancers in women, with an increase in breast carcinoma mortality rates from 3.6 per 100,000 women in 1985 to 6 per 100,000 women in 1994. Most of the tumors are diagnosed in advanced stages with little chance of cure.

CONCLUSIONS: It is necessary to change the guidelines of breast carcinoma screening in Mexican women, to increase the possibility of early diagnosis and better survival.
