Abstract: Cancer of the breast is the most common malignancy and the leading cause of cancer-related mortality in women. Over the past 20 years, mortality from breast cancer in Malta has shown a steady decline and survival from this disease has registered marked improvement, despite the fact that incidence continues to increase. Increased awareness as well as the development of specialized breast care health services have resulted in positive outcomes, with local mortality rates approaching that of the EU-15 average.
