Breast cancer management: a rural perspective.

Author information

Echuca Regional Health, VIC.


Audit of a general surgical practice in the rural Victorian town of Echuca identified 28 new patients with breast cancer between September 1992 and August 1995 (10% of those with breast conditions). The rural setting was no impediment to breast conservation (achieved in 68% of the 25 who had surgery) or to a multidisciplinary approach (management was planned in conjunction with an oncologist and/or specialist breast surgeon for 26 of the 28 patients).
