Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women worldwide with nearly 2.4 million new cases diagnosed in 2015. In Georgia 1756 breast cancer new cases were detected in 2016, incidence rate composed 90.6 per 100000 population; survival from breast cancer is lower than in many developing countries. The goal of the study was to identify predictors for low survival of breast cancer in the country.
