BREAST CANCER

Among women, breast cancer was the most common cancer type with 28% of all newly diagnosed cases, both in 1995 and in 2018.

BREAST INCIDENCE

The number of people diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018 ranged from 95.4 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in Romania and 203.7 in Belgium, with the EU28+EFTA average at 155.7.

BREAST MORTALITY, 2018

In 2018, breast cancer mortality ranged from 24 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in Norway and 51.4 in Croatia, with the EU28+EFTA average at 37.7.

.
BREAST SURVIVAL

In 2010–2014, breast cancer 5-year survival ranged from 74% in Lithuania to 89% in Finland, Iceland, and Sweden. Survival rates between different countries are more uniform than in colon cancer, as 16 countries are in the relatively small range of 85% to 89%.

There is a clear pattern of higher survival rates in countries with a higher GDP (except Ireland) and lower survival rates in countries with a lower GDP. However, several countries with a lower GDP (Estonia, Latvia, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia) achieved significant improvements between 1995–1999 and 2010–2014.
