Abstract A retrospective study of breast cancer was carried out using the treatment registry of Aden Health Office and archives of Al-Gamhoria Teaching Hospital from January 1989 to December 1996 and the records of patients registered at Aden Cancer Centre from January 1997 to December 1998. The data analysed included age, sex, residence, breast affected and type of cancer. There were 227 patients with breast cancer registered between January 1989 and December 1998; 225 were female and 2 were male. Most of the patients (81.5\%) had infiltrating ductal carcinoma. About 90\% of the patients had lymph node involvement. The age groups most affected were 30-39 years and 40-49 years.
