1. Recommendations on screening for breast cancer in women 40-74 years of age who are not at increased risk

Recommendations on screening for breast cancer in women 40-74 years of age who are not at increased risk Recommendations on screening for breast cancer in women aged 40–74 years who are not at increased risk for breast cancer | CMAJ Main menu User menu Search Search for this keyword Search for this keyword Guideline Recommendations on screening for breast cancer in women aged 40–74 years who are not at increased risk for breast cancer Scott Klarenbach , Nicki Sims-Jones , Gabriela Lewin (...) POINTS Low-certainty evidence indicates that screening for breast cancer with mammography results in a modest reduction in breast cancer mortality for women aged 40 to 74 years; the absolute benefit is lowest for women younger than 50 years. Screening may lead to overdiagnosis, resulting in unnecessary treatment of cancer that would not have caused harm in a woman’s lifetime and false-positive results that can lead to both physical and psychological consequences; overdiagnosis and false-positives

2. Should This Woman With Dense Breasts Receive Supplemental Breast Cancer Screening?: Grand Rounds Discussion From Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. (PubMed)

Should This Woman With Dense Breasts Receive Supplemental Breast Cancer Screening?: Grand Rounds Discussion From Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Breast cancer will develop in 12% of women during their lifetime and is the second leading cause of cancer death among U.S. women. Mammography is the most commonly used tool to screen for breast cancer. Considerable uncertainty exists regarding the age at which to begin screening and the optimal screening interval. Breast density is a risk factor (...) for breast cancer. In addition, for women with dense breasts, small tumors may be missed on mammography and the sensitivity of screening is diminished. At the time of publication, 35 states had passed laws mandating that breast density be reported in the letters that radiologists send to women with their mammogram results. The mandated language may be challenging for patients to understand, and such reporting may increase worry for women who are told that their risk for breast cancer is higher than

Automated and Clinical Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System Density Measures Predict Risk of Screen-Detected and Interval Cancers. In 30 states, women who have had screening mammography are informed of their breast density on the basis of Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) density categories estimated subjectively by radiologists. Variation in these clinical categories across and within radiologists has led to discussion about whether automated BI-RADS density should (...) be reported instead.To determine whether breast cancer risk and detection are similar for automated and clinical BI-RADS density measures.Case-control.San Francisco Mammography Registry and Mayo Clinic.1609 women with screen-detected cancer, 351 women with interval invasive cancer, and 4409 matched control participants.Automated and clinical BI-RADS density assessed on digital mammography at 2 time points from September 2006 to October 2014, interval and screen-detected breast cancer risk, and mammography

7. A functional genomic screen in vivo identifies CEACAM5 as a clinically relevant driver of breast cancer metastasis (PubMed)

A functional genomic screen in vivo identifies CEACAM5 as a clinically relevant driver of breast cancer metastasis Tumor cells disseminate early in tumor development making metastasis-prevention strategies difficult. Identifying proteins that promote the outgrowth of disseminated tumor cells may provide opportunities for novel therapeutic strategies. Despite multiple studies demonstrating that the mesenchymal-to-epithelial transition (MET) is critical for metastatic colonization, key regulators (...) that initiate this transition remain unknown. We serially passaged lung metastases from a primary triple negative breast cancer xenograft to the mammary fat pads of recipient mice to enrich for gene expression changes that drive metastasis. An unbiased transcriptomic signature of potential metastatic drivers was generated, and a high throughput gain-of-function screen was performed in vivo to validate candidates. Carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 5 (CEACAM5) was identified

8. The overestimation and the inappropriate promotion of the benefits of mammographic screening in breast cancer research and interventions in the Gaza Strip. (PubMed)

The overestimation and the inappropriate promotion of the benefits of mammographic screening in breast cancer research and interventions in the Gaza Strip. There has been extensive debate about whether mammographic screening has done more good than harm. Recent reviews showed that women who undergo mammographic screening are more likely to have a tumour that was an overdiagnosis and therefore would not cause them problems. In the Gaza Strip, a strong forum of people advocate an increase (...) women have low survival rates because of the poor availability of mammography. Only three study groups mentioned harmful effects of mammographic screening. All educational materials had clear information on the benefits of mammographic screening but minimal information on its harms.Research in the Gaza Strip overestimated the reduction in breast cancer mortality that can be attributable to mammographic screening, and this would encourage women to undergo screening without knowing that it could harm

13. The WISDOM Study: breaking the deadlock in the breast cancer screening debate (PubMed)

The WISDOM Study: breaking the deadlock in the breast cancer screening debate There are few medical issues that have generated as much controversy as screening for breast cancer. In science, controversy often stimulates innovation; however, the intensely divisive debate over mammographic screening has had the opposite effect and has stifled progress. The same two questions-whether it is better to screen annually or bi-annually, and whether women are best served by beginning screening at 40 (...) or some later age-have been debated for 20 years, based on data generated three to four decades ago. The controversy has continued largely because our current approach to screening assumes all women have the same risk for the same type of breast cancer. In fact, we now know that cancers vary tremendously in terms of timing of onset, rate of growth, and probability of metastasis. In an era of personalized medicine, we have the opportunity to investigate tailored screening based on a woman's specific

Cost-Effectiveness of Breast Cancer Screening in Turkey, a Developing Country: Results from Bahçeşehir Mammography Screening Project We used the results from the first three screening rounds of Bahcesehir Mammography Screening Project (BMSP), a 10-year (2009-2019) and the first organized population-based screening program implemented in a county of Istanbul, Turkey, to assess the potential cost-effectiveness of a population-based mammography screening program in Turkey.Two screening (...) strategies were compared: BMSP (includes three biennial screens for women between 40-69) and Turkish National Breast Cancer Registry Program (TNBCRP) which includes no organized population-based screening. Costs were estimated using direct data from the BMSP project and the reimbursement rates of Turkish Social Security Administration. The life-years saved by BMSP were estimated using the stage distribution observed with BMSP and TNBCRP.A total of 67 women (out of 7234 screened women) were diagnosed
