161. Newspaper reporting of screening mammography.

Newspaper reporting of screening mammography. BACKGROUND: Continuing controversy surrounds screening mammography, particularly for women 40 to 49 years of age. Newspapers are potentially important sources of information on this topic, but it is not known whether they provide well-founded and objective information and recommendations. 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

162. 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.
