Background & Aims: Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women, with the peak frequency of a decade lower than the global age. The aim of this cross sectional study is to estimate the burden of breast cancer in women in Western Azerbaijan Province in 2013.
Materials & Methods:  In this cross-sectional study, the information needed to calculate YLD and YLL creating the total DALY including the female population, the mortality, incidence and mean time stage of breast cancer that were obtained from death registration system of cancer registry. The standard World Health Organization (discount rate 0.03 0.04 Weight age, and fixed adjusted 0.165) was used to calculate YLL and YLD and all the information collected and entered into EXCEL TEMPLATE software and the calculations were carried out.
Results: The entire burden of lost years of life due to breast cancer in 2013 was 1645 years. YLL in 2013, was equaled to1385 years while the share of YLD was calculated as 260 years. DALY rate per hundred thousand female populations was 1.1 years. Breast cancer incidence and death rate per hundred thousand women in 2013 were 14.2 and 4.7, respectively, that the peak age of breast cancer has been accessed in the age group of 45-59.
Conclusion: The incidence, mortality and the burden of breast cancer in women have been raised compared to the study last year. The findings may help managers through the awareness of factors affecting the burden of disease, preventative measures and the idea of screening and early detection of breast cancer.
