Study finds mammography screening reduces breast cancer mortality
Date:6/27/2011

ed stable over the follow-up period, the absolute benefit in terms of lives saved increased with longer follow-up times. At 29 years of follow-up, the estimated number of women needed to undergo screening every 2 or 3 years over a seven-year period to prevent one breast cancer death ranged from 414 to 519.

According to the researchers, evaluation of the full impact of screening mammography requires follow-up times exceeding 15 to 20 years, because the observed number of breast cancer deaths prevented increases with the passage of time.

"Most of the deaths prevented would have occurred more than 10 years after the screening started," Duffy said. "This indicates that the long-term benefits of screening in terms of deaths prevented are more than double those often quoted for short-term follow-up."

These new data add to the evidence on the long-term benefits of regular mammography screening, and should be included in the discussions between women and doctors about what to expect from breast cancer screening.

"Unfortunately, we cannot know for certain who will and who will not develop breast cancer," Duffy said. "But if you undergo a recommended screening regimen, and you are diagnosed with breast cancer at an early stage, chances are very good that it will be successfully treated."
