A total of 2,474 Australian women with early invasive breast cancer which were treated by breast surgeons participating in the National Breast Cancer Audit (NBCA) in 2006 were analysed for this report. The majority of participating surgeons were full members of the Breast Section of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS). These cases represented invasive breast cancers entered in the RACS NBCA database to August 2007. Details of these cancers and of their management are described in this report by age at diagnosis, treatment centre location, and referral source. Invasive breast cancers recorded by the NBCA among New Zealand women are not addressed.
