Over the past 30 years, the distribution of incident breast carcinoma cases in the U.S. has shifted toward smaller tumors, even within conventional stage categories. A substantial proportion of the improvement noted in breast carcinoma survival can be attributed to this within-stage migration of tumor size. Standardizing survival estimates on the basis of tumor size improves the understanding of secular trends in breast carcinoma outcomes.
