In the Federal Republic of Germany, as in the rest of Europe, breast carcinoma is the leading cause of cancer death. In 1981 alone, 12,808 West German women (17.1% of female cancer deaths) died from breast cancer or its sequelae. Approximately 40% of these women died before the age of 65; breast cancer is the leading cause of death in general among women in the 35- to 54-year age group. From 1956 to 1975 the incidence of breast cancer in Central and Western Europe rose at a rate of about 1% annually, resulting in an overall increase of approximately 20% (Becker et al., 1984).
