The Japanese Breast Cancer Society (JBCS) registry began data collection in 1975, and it was integrated into National Clinical Database in 2012. As of 2016, the JBCS registry contains records of 656,896 breast cancer patients from more than 1400 hospitals throughout Japan. In the 2016 registration, the number of institutes involved was 1422, and the total number of patients was 95,870. We herein present the summary of the annual data of the JBCS registry collected in 2016. We analyzed the demographic and clinicopathologic characteristics of registered breast cancer patients from various angles. Especially, we examined the registrations on family history, menstruation, onset age, body mass index according to age, nodal status based on tumor size and subtype, and proportion based on ER, PgR, and HER2 status. This report based on the JBCS registry would support clinical management for breast cancer patients and clinical study in the near future.
