Breast cancer mortality has not declined in women over 85
Date:1/16/2013

Since 1992 the number of deaths linked to breast cancer in Spain has decreased among young and middle aged patients but not among the elderly. Spanish researchers also predict that it will continue to decline over the next decade, although more slowly as observed up until now.

A new study headed by a team of Spanish researchers has analysed breast cancer mortality in Spain among different age groups from 1981 to 2007, setting a valid prediction up until 2023.

Studying this age-related tendency is interesting because any improvement could have significant social and economic consequences, especially in terms of the development of specific health plans.

"We used the Lee-Carter model to examine the data. This model is normally used to study general mortality but rarely employed to study mortality as a result of specific causes," as explained to SINC by Alejandro lvaro Meca, lead author of the study and researcher at the department of Preventative Medicine and Public Health at the Rey Juan Carlos University in Madrid.

Published in the 'Public Health' journal, the results confirm that associated mortality increased with age, whereas in the different age groups it has decreased over time. The study shows an increase in breast cancer mortality in Spain from 1981 to 1992 and then a decrease from 1993 to 2007.

This could be due to the global increase in mammographies in women over the age of 45, which has increased early diagnosis and improved survival rates as a result.

"The new results support this assumption: there is an evident decrease in breast cancer mortality in women under the age of 50," state the authors.

A slower decrease for the future

The last stage of the Lee-Carter model involves predicting mortality in the future: up until 2023 in this case. lvaro Meca suggests that the death rate will decrease but will not be so marked as in the past.
