The study was a review of 294 patients from a breast cancer database, who were treated for operable breast cancer and subsequently developed a recurrence between 1989 and 2003. Patients were divided into four groups according to the site of first recurrence (local, lymph node, bone or visceral). Breast Cancer Specific Survival (BCSS) was compared using Kaplan–Meier life table analysis and the log rank test.


Survival of patients with recurrent breast cancer is associated with the site of first recurrence. The prognosis from recurrence is progressively worse with local, regional, bone and visceral metastasis.
