New Breast Cancer Recommendation May Cost Lives While Saving Money
Date:11/20/2009

u are going to be missing detecting early cancers, and possibly risk the loss of one life,” said Dr. Brann. “That one life is significant. It could be your sister, your mother, or a loved one.”

The National Center for Health Statistics estimates that in 2009, for women under age 45, there will be 6,460 cases of breast cancer in situ (cancer that is confined to the ducts and lobules) and 18,640 cases of invasive breast cancer (cancer that infiltrated to the fatty tissue of the breast). In this age group, 2,920 women will die from breast cancer.

In 2009, 6.2 percent of women between ages 35 and 44 will die from breast cancer and 15.1 percent of women between ages 45 and 54 will die.

“Common sense tells you that if you have a cancer in your early 40s and you are not screened until you are 50, your cancer is going to be more advanced and harder to treat than if you had been screened earlier. Your possibility of mortality is higher because you waited,” said Dr. Brann. “These new recommendations are going to cost lives, just because people are waiting. Would you rather be safe or sorry?”

According to the American Cancer Society, mammograms on average will detect 80 to 90 percent of breast cancers in women who have no symptoms.

The National Cancer Institute estimates that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime.

“Look at the survival rates of breast cancer patients. You will see how vital it is that women are diagnosed early, before it is too late,” said Dr. Brann.

The American Cancer Society estimates that the 5-year survival rate for breast cancer is 100 percent in stage 1, between 80 to 90 percent in stage 2, between 50 to 70 percent in stage 3, and only 20 percent in stage 4.
