144. Regular mammography use is associated with elimination of age-related disparities in size and stage of breast cancer at diagnosis.

Regular mammography use is associated with elimination of age-related disparities in size and stage of breast cancer at diagnosis. BACKGROUND: There is little consensus about recommending mammography for women 75 years of age and older. These women have mammography less frequently and are more likely to receive a diagnosis of advanced breast cancer. OBJECTIVE: To examine the relationship between use of screening mammography and size and stage of cancer at diagnosis in older women. DESIGN (...) larger tumors at diagnosis and were less likely to have undergone screening mammography than younger women (69 to 74 years of age). The association between increased mammography use and smaller tumor size and stage was significantly greater in older women than in younger women (P = 0.010 for stage; P = 0.001 for size).

145. News media coverage of screening mammography for women in their 40s and tamoxifen for primary prevention of breast cancer.

News media coverage of screening mammography for women in their 40s and tamoxifen for primary prevention of breast cancer. CONTEXT: In the late 1990s, 3 events pertaining to breast cancer prevention received considerable attention in the US news media: a National Institutes of Health (NIH) consensus panel recommended against routine screening mammography for women in their 40s (January 1997), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) subsequently reversed the recommendation (March 1997), and an NCI (...) risk should do (62% suggested there was a lot of uncertainty), and none left the impression that women should definitely take the drug (24% suggested they probably should). Sixty-five percent of these stories suggested that women faced a genuine choice and would have to weigh the risks and benefits themselves. CONCLUSIONS: Most news stories favored routine use of screening mammography and urged caution about using tamoxifen. Almost all noted the potential harms of each preventive strategy; however

OBJECTIVE: To examine how screening mammography is reported in newspapers. DESIGN: Cross-sectional descriptive study. SETTING: 6 top-circulation U.S. newspapers (...) , 1990 to 1997. MEASUREMENTS: Number of articles about screening mammography, issues covered by the articles, information sources, content and sources of quotes, recommendations cited in articles, and presentation of risks and benefits. RESULTS: The most common theme of newspaper articles about mammography was screening for women 40 to 49 years of age. Thirty-one percent of the articles presented information without citing a source or justification. Quotes and recommendations in the articles were

156. Cochrane review on screening for breast cancer with mammography.

Cochrane review on screening for breast cancer with mammography. In 2000, we reported that there is no reliable evidence that screening for breast cancer reduces mortality. As we discuss here, a Cochrane review has now confirmed and strengthened our previous findings. The review also shows that breast-cancer mortality is a misleading outcome measure. Finally, we use data supplemental to those in the Cochrane review to show that screening leads to more aggressive treatment.
