Start > Resource centre > Articles > Improving survival in breast cancer Part 2

One hundred and twelve patients treated at the Breast Clinic at this hospital were carefully studied. The size of the tumour, its dependence on hormones and the timing of the menstrual cycle were documented. These patients were followed up for ten years and the results were analysed. Overall 45% of women operated in the first half of the menstrual cycle survived while 75% of those operated in the second half of the cycle were alive after ten years.

These results are very interesting and they can contribute to a substantial improvement for women with breast cancer. One must be careful to point out that this study will have to be repeated in other centres with larger numbers before the results are accepted as conclusive, even though the study was carried out at a centre with an excellent reputation.

The findings should definitely be taken into consideration when premenopausal women are scheduled for surgery as they may significantly improve their chances of survival.
