The incidence of breast cancer in Latvia has increased. Early breast cancer (T1N0M0) makes only 18% of all cases. The study comprised 247 patients treated at the Latvia Center of Oncology in the period 1990-1992. We analyzed the correlation between 5-year survival, risk factors, histology, age, and type of surgical treatment; 118 patients were treated postoperatively by adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Data on life quality are shown in the study.
