SummaryBackgroundEarly diagnosis of breast cancer leads to early treatment therefore improving women's health. However, most Thai women are diagnosed at a late stage.ObjectiveThis cross-sectional correlational study was designed to explore factors influencing the diagnosis of early stage breast cancer in Thai women.MethodThai women (n = 400) newly diagnosed breast cancer at all clinical stages from public hospitals in Bangkok Metropolitan completed a questionnaire about knowledge of breast cancer and screening. The questionnaire addressed pre-diagnosis data about: (1) health care provider's recommendations to undertake breast screening, (2) health coverage for mammography (MM) costs and (3) regularity of breast screening behaviors in terms of breast self-examination (BSE), clinical breast examination (CBE) and MM including stage breast cancer at diagnosis. Data analysis was determined by PASW Statistics version 18 as univariate and multivariate logistic regression.ResultsHealth coverage for MM costs and all three behaviors were significantly related to and could predict the early stages breast cancer at diagnosis (p < 0.05): health coverage for MM costs (OR = 0.32, 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.17–0.63), BSE (OR = 8.08, CI 95%, 3.93–16.63), CBE (OR = 12.54, CI 95%, 2.29–68.65) and MM (OR = 5.89, CI 95%, 1.13–30.73).ConclusionsAll three behaviors are essential and related to one another. CBE on a regular basis is the best predictor for early stages breast cancer at diagnosis in Thai context. Nurses should provide information and teach including re-check the women's skills to perform BSE regularly.
