The present study was initiated by data on the anatomical occurrence of metastases from breast cancer. Metastases may occur at various organs, here grouped into ten categories, and simultaneous occurrences at several sites are common. Our aim was to identify and compare risk factors for development of metastases at each site. The influence of the various risk factors for recurrence at one specific site can be modelled as a standard competing risk problem, using well-established survival… CONTINUE READING
