Abstract

A retrospective review of male patients suffering from breast cancer seen over an 18-year period was carried out at the Department of Clinical Oncology of the University Hospital of Graz.

The corrected five-year survival (Kaplan-Meier) is 83% for the entire group, 100% for patients with Stage I disease, 86% in Stage II, and 67% in Stage III and IV disease, respectively. This corresponds well with the results in recently published series. Stage of disease at initial presentation was a significant factor determining survival in our investigation. Our own data as well as recent data from literature suggest that with respect to TNM Stages in mamm...Continue Reading
