Breast cancer incidence among Nebraska women: early- and late-stage trends, 1995-2009.

Abstract

Differences in breast cancer incidence and stage at diagnosis have been observed among women of different socioeconomic status. We evaluated trends in invasive breast cancer incidence by stage and poverty among Nebraska women using cancer registry data. We demonstrated increasing incidence of early- and late-stage cancer among women living in the lowest poverty level tracts. Determining the underlying reasons for increases in early- and late-stage breast cancers among this population warrants further investigation.
