Risk of breast cancer-related death in women with a prior cancer

Figure 3. Ratio of breast cancer deaths to prior cancer deaths among patients with different types of prior cancer. Patients with prior gastrointestinal cancer, melanoma, and urinary tract cancer were more likely to die of breast cancer when they had high-grade or stage cT3–T4/N0/M0 breast cancer, but were more likely to die of prior cancer when they had low-grade and stage cT1–2/N0/M0 breast cancer.
