Deaths from breast cancer fall in Europe
Date:3/20/2014

23.7% between 1989 and 2010, while during the same period breast cancer mortality declined by 34.3% in Norway, where nationwide screening was introduced 15 years later than in Sweden. Yet in countries where major screening programmes were implemented after 2000 (e.g. Norway, Belgium, Switzerland, and Austria) we have seen considerable reductions in deaths from breast cancer that are comparable or greater than in countries that implemented screening at the end of the 1980s, for example Sweden, The Netherlands, the UK, and Finland. These are some of the many factors that continue to puzzle us, and we need to put considerable effort into finding out why these differences exist," Prof Autier will say.

New, more effective drugs and the growing availability of multidisciplinary cancer treatments should encourage a further downward trend in deaths from breast cancer. "But there is still a large burden of breast cancer mortality in some of the countries studied, particularly among older women, and reducing that remains a high priority for the future," he will conclude.

Dr Hilary Dobson, chair of EBCC-9's national organising committee and who is Clinical Lead of the West of Scotland Breast Screening Service and the Lead Clinician of the West of Scotland Cancer Advisory Network (WoSCAN), commented: "These findings are an important contribution to the ongoing challenge of understanding which strategies should be implemented to improve survival from breast cancer. Comparison among countries reveals a picture of variation and real complexity when considering factors such as population screening or access to cancer drugs. As no single factor emerges as an answer, continuing scrutiny on this scale and analysis is vital."
