Recurrence of breast cancer after more than 10 years is an important indicator of survival
Date:3/24/2010

s still a very strong prognostic factor, even after a long disease-free interval suggests that it probably is a symptom of (and therefore associated with) distant disease occurring at the same time, and not the instigator of disease progression in the majority of cases."

However, he said that further research on locoregional recurrences was needed. "To date, it remains difficult to assess whether a locoregional recurrence is a true recurrence or a second primary. This is of significant importance for clinicians when they assess the indications for giving adjuvant systemic therapy. There are not many large-scale studies, which address this clinical feature of breast cancer disease. Since breast cancer may recur even after 15 years of follow-up, studies demonstrating the prognostic impact of events that happen after primary treatment are very important."

The research provides further information for the ongoing debates about how long women who have been treated successfully for breast cancer should be followed up by doctors. While not giving any definitive answers on this, the study does show that breast cancer can recur and progress even after a long time disease free. "Therefore, clinicians and patients should consider adjuvant systemic, both for the treatment of the primary cancer and in the event of any recurrence," said Dr van der Hage.
