Relative survival (RS) at 5 years for Stage 1 breast cancer at SJMC

SJMC is among the first hospitals in Malaysia to embark on routine measurement of the performance of its cancer care services with results comparable to leading cancer centers in developed countries. Cancer survival is a key index of the overall effectiveness of health services in the management of patients.

In SJMC, a total of 675 patients treated between 2008 and 2012 were studied. 65% with early breast cancer, 20% with locally advanced breast cancer and 4% with metastatic breast cancer with an overall relative survival rate at 5 years of 88%. RS for stage I was 100% and for stage II, III and IV disease was 95%, 69% and 36% respectively.
