Epidemiology of breast cancer in thailand

, : Epidemiology of breast cancer in thailand. Thai Journal of Surgery 5(1): 14-18

Breast cancer has been cited as the 2nd leading cancer occurring in Thai women. The incidence in 1978 was 2.45/100,000. It is predicted that the incidence will increase due to the observed upward trend. A study of 331 breast cancer patients at the National Cancer Institute in Thailand (NCI) during 1976-1980 revealed that breast cancer was prevalent in married women between 40-49 yr of age with more than 2 children. Breast cancer was found mostly among farmers, housewives and retired persons. The need for breast cancer detection clinics is urgent since there are too many advanced cases.
