Study of the breast cancer incidence in the population of Ukraine and territories exposed to the Chrnobyl accident has shown a stable increase in the indices, their growth rates in the contaminated areas were twice as large as in the whole Ukraine. Breast cancer of the female population aged 0-39 years was studied separately as the most sensitive to radiation. The breast cancer was established to be consistently in the first place in the structure of incidence of the female population both of Ukraine and the studied areas (20-24%), i.e. the breast cancer is diagnosed in one of five women with cancer, this emphasizes a significance of the problem. Study of trend models of breast cancer in the women of 0-39 years age group showed that in the post-accident period the increase of the incidence in the contaminated areas had reached 43.5% while in Ukraine it hadnt exceed 18.1%. Those features of the dynamics of breast cancer incidence promoted a significant rapprochement of the indices, registered in Ukraine and in the oblasts of radiation control, and since 1994-1997 the level of the breast cancer incidence in the majority of the radioactively contaminated areas exceeded the average Ukrainian level.
