Introduction: Breast cancer is commonly diagnosed cancer in women. Tumor receptors estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) are well recognized prognostic factors for breast cancer. Materials and Method: Data from the department of pathology for the 5-year period (2010 to 2014) is used for analysis for Kamrup district of Assam, India. Kaplan Meir method was used to evaluate survival rate. Result: The overall 5-year survival is observed as 54.6%. There is a 10.6% improvement in survival was recorded among those who living in the urban areas. The risk of death was 40% higher for those who were resides in rural areas compared to urban areas (P = 0.070). There is a 6 fold variation in survival was observed according to their stage at presentation. Hormone receptors found to be play an important role in survival outcome. Patients with ER/PR+ (positive) status have 13.6% higher survival rate than those with ER/PR-. The overall survival for ER/PR positive is 72.1% compared to 58.5% of ER/PR negative. Conclusion: From the study it is observed that population with positive hormone receptors (ER/PR +) and living in the urban areas is experiencing survival rate.
