Abstract

Aim: to analyze the temporal trend of mortality from malignant neoplasm of the breast and cervix from 1999 to 2019 in Passo Fundo, Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil. Methods: a time-series study based on data from the Brazilian Unified Health System's Mortality; standardized coefficients were calculated according to age and schooling, and the temporal trend was evaluated by Prais-Winsten regression. Results: there was stability in the mortality coefficients for cervical cancer (β = -0.03 – 95%CI -0.08;0.02) and formalignant breast cancer (β = -0.006 – 95%CI -0.02;0.01) over the time series; in both types of neoplasms, an ascending trend was identified in women with low schooling; on the other hand, a stationary trend was observed in most of the age strata analyzed. Conclusion: older women and those with up to 7 years of schooling are those with the worst prognosis.
