1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

There are many factors which contribute to the mortality and morbidity of breast cancer. These are factors related to the tumour itself, the patient's health and demographics, and how the patient was managed. With new knowledge and data in breast cancer and by analysing these factors we can predict the long term survival of breast cancer patients.
