Abstract
In 2002, breast became the most common cancer site in Korean women. Using national breast cancer incidence data during 1993-2002, crude, age-standardized, and age-specific rates for incidence and mortality were calculated. Survival was examined for cases diagnosed during 1993-2002 and followed up to 2004. Observed survival was calculated using the life table method and relative survival using the Ederer II method. Age-standardized incidence rates in female increased from 14.5 in 1993 to 26.2 per 100,000 in 2002. Age-specific incidences showed peaks in women in their forties. Mortality rates increased from 3.7 in 1993 to 4.6 per 100,000 in 2002 and showed peaks in women in their fifties. Five-year relative survival for female breast cancer diagnosed during 1993-2002 was 82.2%. When we examined the secular trends using cases diagnosed 1993-1999 for complete 5-yr followup, the 5-yr relative survival increased from 75.2% in 1993 to 83.5% in 1999. The data from this study will provide valuable information to plan and evaluate actions against breast cancer including national breast cancer screening.
