In Ukraine cancers are among the most frequent diseases and in the past 10 years, cancer incidence has increased by 14%. In women the most common form of cancer is breast cancer.
In Europe, the five-year survival rate among women with breast cancer is 80-82%, in the United States this figure is 91%, while in Ukraine it is only 56%. The major causes are: the low level of public awareness; the low level of medical knowledge among general public; and the poor conditions of cancer clinics, equipment and facilities.
