occupying the first position among all cases of mortality from all forms of cancer for
women who have the ability to work till 60 years old.
Itís interesting that the left breast is defeated by cancer more often (63-63.9%) than the right breast(31-33. 1%). Probably this fact is explained by the low physical activity of the left hand.
Among the illness there were many women with late menarche - after 15 years old-38.24% in 1980-1990 and 17.8% in 1991-2000.
