Between 2002 and 2006, the mortalità è gone from 17.9% to 16.7% for every 100,000 women, becoming così 7% but a bit’ of time, mortality,à had started to fall, and by the last years of the 80’s to the early 2000’s there was già been a reduction of 15% in the European Union.
The country that guide the reduction of mortality,à è Great Britain, while in the centre and especially in the east of Europe, which had seen a mortalityà growing up in the midà of the years 90, the reduction is minor, and the situation improves slowly.
Cristina Bosetti, a researcher in the Department of Epidemiology at the Institute of Pharmacological Research ‘Mario Negri’ – indicates in the improvement of the therapy the key to understanding this increased survival, which dà his best results in women più young people, and that bring even better results in the future.
The rate of mortality,à abbasserà in 2012, 15 per 100,000 women, with 25,000 deaths less each year in Europe compared to the 80s.

The attention to reconstruction, when possible, made già during the first surgery, and prolonged therapy targeted on the type of cancer they have allowed to women treated for breast cancer to not only survive cancer, but to have a qualityà of life much better than it was in previous years.
You è also arrived at the consciousness of the fact that the surgery is only a part, even if essential, of the therapeutic procedures.
Oncologists, radiologists, radiotherapists, pathologists, physiotherapists, along with the surgeons, form the integrated team, that give rise to paths which raise the qualityà of the treatments, as a core strategy to increase survival.
early Diagnosis, therefore,high qualityà of the care, attention to the subsequent treatment procedures and reintegration in normal life are steps that can help and that will, increasingly, to more and more women to consider breast cancer as a hiccup passed, to remember like any other disease.
