Synopsis: 
The age at diagnosis of breast cancer in women of Grand Bahama Island, The Bahamas, significantly influenced the survival rates, with younger women living longer. Staging and axillary lymph node status influenced survival to a lesser extent. The influence of treatment modalities on survival was not demonstrated, and this might have been due to the small sample size.
