ACR, SBI on cancer study: More breast cancer screening needed in younger women
Date:9/8/2013

f mammography that have shown varying benefits, these findings provide more definitive information through a technique called "failure analysis" which looks backwards from death to discover correlations at diagnosis. Harvard Medical School Professor of Surgery (emeritus) Blake Cady, MD, and his colleagues followed cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed between 1990 and 1999 at Partners HealthCare hospitals through 2007, analyzing demographics, mammography use, surgical and pathology reports and recurrence and death dates to discover correlations.

"This study should effectively end confusion over when, and particularly if, women need to begin screening. Every year, breast cancer takes too many of our mothers, wives, sisters and friends. While these findings cannot bring back those already lost, they clearly demonstrate that mammography saves lives, and many more deaths can be avoided through regular screening," said Murray Rebner, MD, FACR, president of the Society of Breast Imaging.

While breast cancer mortality has been on steady decline (about 2 percent per year) in the last two decades, the majority of deaths that are still occurring are in women who do not receive regular mammograms. With more prevalent screening, especially in younger women, the study suggests that breast cancer mortality could decrease to much less than 10 percent overall in the next ten years, and perhaps to as low as 5 percent overall by 2030.
