Breast cancer is a multifactorial disease, in which genetic and environmental factors contribute to its appearance. This article analyzes the determinants of health related to breast cancer in a population of patients of a health care provider. An analytical, retrospective, case-control study was conducted in women with histologically confirmed diagnosis of breast cancer and matched controls, attended in a health care provider institution (IPS) in the period 2000 and 2017. Logistic regression models were performed, calculating the odds ratio of risk of dying from breast cancer contrasted with biological, environmental, lifestyle and health services, in a crude and adjusted way (ORa) and their 95% confidence intervals.
