Doctor attacks South African government for failing women while spending billions on arms deals

It is the number one cause of cancer death in Brazilian women," he told the 4th European Breast Cancer Conference.

"More than 40,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer and 9,000 women died from it in 2003. Thirty years ago eight in every 100,000 women died from breast cancer but this has increased to 12 women in every 100,000 now. Thirty per cent of women with breast cancer still present with locally advanced disease. There is much room for improvement and strategies are being implemented to change this picture. A large national breast cancer project is being planned and soon will incorporate screening mammography after the age of 50.

"However, the increasing cost associated with treatment adds to the burden of dealing with breast cancer in Brazil. Currently, treating breast cancer with chemotherapy and hormonal therapy represents approximately a quarter of the government's cancer costs."
