Zusammenfassung

Nach überschlägigen Schätzungen sterben auf der gesamten Erde jährlich rund 250000 Frauen an Mammakrebs. In der westlichen Welt ist der Brustkrebs heutzutage die häufigste Krebsform beim weiblichen Geschlecht. Rund 7% aller Frauen, d.h. etwa jede 15. Frau, erkranken im Laufe des Lebens an einem Mammakarzinom [22]. 1976 wurden in den USA 88000 an Brustkrebs erkrankte Patientinnen registriert; 33000 starben im gleichen Jahr [35]. In der Bundesrepublik Deutschland verstarben 1978 11720 Frauen an Brustkrebs; das sind 36 Brustkrebsopfer auf 100000 Frauen und 15,1% aller Krebssterbefälle beim weiblichen Geschlecht. In der Altersklasse der 35- bis 54jährigen Frauen ist der Brustkrebs heute die häufigste Todesursache überhaupt. In den meisten zivilisierten Ländern zeigt die Mammakrebssterblichkeit einen ansteigenden Trend [10].
