Frequent Mammograms Can Decreases The Risk of Death

Researchers say that women as a whole receive only approximately 50 percent to 60 percent of the annual mammograms recommended .// Researchers found this underutilization reduces the life-saving benefits of annual mammography.

Researchers reviewed data from over 70,000 women receiving mammograms. Only 6 percent of women got 10 mammograms over 10 years, and the median number received was five.Having regular mammograms was clearly found to reduce risk of death from breast cancer. Among women who were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, those who had annual mammograms had an 11.97-percent risk of death. Women who received five mammograms in 10 years had a 16.1-percent risk of death. Those who received only one screening every five years had about a 25-percent risk of death.

Thus researchers say, that their data reveals that the widespread failure of many women to attend screening regularly occurs to a degree that is likely to reduce the life- sparing potential of screening and they feel it is necessary to research the underlying factors that determine levels of screening use.
