Results of a multi-centre survey concerning the treatment of hormone-dependent breast cancer in Poland in 2009–2013
Languages of publication
In order to present a reliable picture of hormone-dependent breast cancer treatment in Poland, an on-line survey has been conducted in 19 oncology centres. As a result, data on the treatment of 486 patients have been obtained (405 of them initially presenting with stage I–III of disease advancement, and 81 representing stage IV). It has been concluded that in the majority of cases the treatment in question involves combined therapy, including chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, targeted molecular therapy, radiotherapy, and surgical methods with reference to the group of patients subjected to radical treatment.
