The mortality of breast cancer 'has been serious medical and social problems. ln Korea, breast cancer is the most common cancer of wømen and, increases rapidly. In 1950s the concept of breast cancer was advocated to not local disease but systemic disease, so the systemic fherapy of fhe breast cancer - chemotherapy and endocrine therapy -has been investigated very actively. Even though the survival benefit of breast cancer patients is due to the early diagnosis,and treatment through early examination, it is also true that the systemic therapy make the patients Iive longer. The Korea breast cancer society announced the breast cancer practice guidelines. These can be made based on the NGCN(National Comprehensive Cancer Network) practice guidelines and these were revised for the Korean circumstances.
