Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women accounting for 19.7% of all female cancers in the Republic of Buryatia. Nearly every fourth cancer, diagnosed in women of working age, is breast cancer. From 1999 to 2013 the age-standardized incidence for breast cancer increased by 20.0% showing an upward tendency. The incidence rate in females residing in Ulan Ude city is 1.6 times higher than that in the general population. A relationship between the national composition of the population of municipal districts of Buryatia and the breast cancer incidence are revealed. The highest incidence rates are observed in areas dominated by Slavic population. Source
