Global migration has led to growing ethnic and cultural diversity in developed countries. Chinese immigrants are the largest Asian immigrant group in Australia and the US. Despite lower breast cancer (BC) rates in their country of origin, BC incidence among Chinese migrants is similar to those in the general population of their naturalized or adopted home. Additionally, among Chinese migrants BC is the most common cancer accounting for the greatest number of cancer deaths. Chinese migrant breast cancer survivors (BCS) have documented poorer cancer outcomes. We explored patient reported HRQOL and survivorship outcomes in a Tri-Country examination of Chinese BCS in Los Angeles (N=73), Sydney (N=130 Chinese and 185 Anglo-Australians) and Hong Kong (N=371).
