Özet

Introduction: Women 65 years of age or older make up one half of all new breast cancer patients. These patients are called geriatric patients. Their prognosis is better than the younger patients. Generally, they are offered less intensive treatment. In this retrospective analysis we evaluated whether geriatric postmenopausal breast cancer patients are different from non-geriatric patients, regarding prognostic factors and survival rates.
