Abstract

A descriptive analysis was conducted in the Breast Diagnostic Center (Centro de Diagnóstico Mamaria, CENDIMA, Uruguay) during 230 months when description, survival and disease-free survival were analyzed in 1.311 treated women with breast cancer, in correlation to the prognostic factors for breast cancer.

For this population, ganglia status and stage were the parameters of highest prognostic value in relation to disease- free survival; ganglia status and final histologic score were the main variables considering global survival.

Final data was comparable to international literature.
