We aimed to characterize a cohort of 70+ aged women diagnosed with early breast cancer, and compare two groups of women, one group where the women received surgical treatment due to guidelines and another group where the women did not receive surgical treatment. We will study which factors that influence the choice of treatment and evaluate the need of geriatric assessment and intervention in the decision-making and perioperative process.
