Abstract: Women who have been treated for breast cancer are typically followed up with regular mammography and palpation, with the aim of detecting recurrences and contralateral breast cancer (CBC). This study aims to investigate if the diagnostic work-up of breast cancer patients has improved over the last 25 years and resulted in earlier diagnoses of CBC. Two population-based cohorts were used; all CBCs in Sweden 1976-2004 (n: 2932), and all CBCs in Stockholm, Sweden, 1976-2005 (n: 626), both cohorts with a maximum of 3 years between the two cancers. Synchronous CBC was defined as two cancers
