The influence of the timing of surgery in relation to the menstrual cycle on the survival of breast cancer patients has been both advocated and disputed. The records of 165 premenopausal M- breast cancer women consecutively operated from 1977 to 1991 were reviewed. All patients underwent modified radical mastectomies or quandrantectomies plus postoperative radio-therapy. Node-positive patients received adjuvant chemotherapy. Cox regression analysis was used to estimate the relative risk (RR) of death in three models including timing of surgery, age, histology, pT and pN. In each model, patients were divided into two groups according to the criteria proposed by Badwe, Hrushesky, and Senie. Multivariate analysis showed a significant association between pT and pN and survival, whereas no association with survival was observed for the timing of surgery according to either Badwe or Hrushesky or Senie (RR = 1.26, RR = 0.91 and RR = 0.88 respectively). Consensus on the menstrual phase related to the expected best prognosis is still required.
