Recent Study Flawed
If you are a woman over 40, schedule your annual mammogram today!
A recent study from Denmark made the claim that 40-50% breast cancers that were found by screening mammography were cancers that were not going to harm the patient over the course of her life, called over diagnosis.
“The American Cancer Society, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the American College of Radiology, and the American College of Surgeons have all continued to recommend screening mammograophy annually beginning at 40 years of age for an average risk woman. There are many studies, including a large Dutch study just released in the last couple of days, that show women who are screened for breast cancer survive longer than women who are not screened.

This estimation was made upon reviewing population data from a national data base and didn’t look at individual patients, or even who did or did not undergo screening mammography. This was not a new, this is a statistical review in counties where screening was an was not offered.
A study from a few years ago, printed in the British Journal of Medicine estimates the rate of over diagnosis at about 2%, based on review of individual patient data. The American Cancer Society has reviewed the data from the study in the British Medical Journal and has endorsed the findings.
What we do know, based on well run randomized trials that looked at direct patient data, is mortality from breast cancer has decreased by about 30% (range 25-40% across multiple studies) in the screening era. Good breast health includes a breast exam by your doctor every 1-3 years from age 20-40 and annually after age forty, awareness of what your normal breast tissue feels like and annual mammography after 40.” View News Report
