1. Overdiagnosis in primary care: framing the problem and finding solutions. (PubMed)

Overdiagnosis in primary care: framing the problem and finding solutions. Overdiagnosis, is defined as the diagnosis of a condition that, if unrecognized, would not cause symptoms or harm a patient during his or her lifetime, and it is increasingly acknowledged as a consequence of screening for cancer and other conditions. Because preventive care is a crucial component of primary care, which is delivered to the broad population, overdiagnosis in primary care is an important problem from (...) a public health perspective and has far reaching implications. The scope of overdiagnosis as a result of services delivered in primary care is unclear, though overdiagnosis of indolent breast, prostate, thyroid, and lung cancers is well described and overdiagnosis of chronic kidney disease, depression, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is also recognized. However, overdiagnosis is a known consequence of all screening and can be assumed to occur in many more clinical contexts. Overdiagnosis

3. Defining, Estimating, and Communicating Overdiagnosis in Cancer Screening. (PubMed)

Defining, Estimating, and Communicating Overdiagnosis in Cancer Screening. The toll of inadequate health care is well-substantiated, but recognition is mounting that "too much" is also possible. Overdiagnosis represents one harm of too much medicine, but the concept can be confusing: It is often conflated with related harms (such as overtreatment, misclassification, false-positive results, and overdetection) and is difficult to measure because it cannot be directly observed. Because the U.S (...) . Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) issues screening recommendations aimed largely at healthy persons, it has a particular interest in understanding harms related to screening, especially but not limited to overdiagnosis. In support of the USPSTF, the authors summarize the knowledge and provide guidance on defining, estimating, and communicating overdiagnosis in cancer screening. To improve consistency, thinking, and reporting about overdiagnosis, they suggest a specific definition. The authors

5. Effectiveness of and overdiagnosis from mammography screening in the Netherlands: population based study. (PubMed)

Effectiveness of and overdiagnosis from mammography screening in the Netherlands: population based study. Objective To analyse stage specific incidence of breast cancer in the Netherlands where women have been invited to biennial mammography screening since 1989 (ages 50-69) and 1997 (ages 70-75), and to assess changes in breast cancer mortality and quantified overdiagnosis. Design Population based study. Setting Mammography screening programme, the Netherlands. Participants Dutch women of all (...) ages, 1989 to 2012. Main outcome measures Stage specific age adjusted incidence of breast cancer from 1989 to 2012. The extra numbers of in situ and stage 1 breast tumours associated with screening were estimated by comparing rates in women aged 50-74 with those in age groups not invited to screening. Overdiagnosis was estimated after subtraction of the lead time cancers. Breast cancer mortality reductions and overdiagnosis during 2010-12 were computed without (scenario 1) and with (scenario 2

7. Breast Cancer Screening in Denmark: A Cohort Study of Tumor Size and Overdiagnosis. (PubMed)

Breast Cancer Screening in Denmark: A Cohort Study of Tumor Size and Overdiagnosis. Background: Effective breast cancer screening should detect early-stage cancer and prevent advanced disease. Objective: To assess the association between screening and the size of detected tumors and to estimate overdiagnosis (detection of tumors that would not become clinically relevant). Design: Cohort study. Setting: Denmark from 1980 to 2010. Participants: Women aged 35 to 84 years. Intervention: Screening (...) programs offering biennial mammography for women aged 50 to 69 years beginning in different regions at different times. Measurements: Trends in the incidence of advanced (>20 mm) and nonadvanced (≤20 mm) breast cancer tumors in screened and nonscreened women were measured. Two approaches were used to estimate the amount of overdiagnosis: comparing the incidence of advanced and nonadvanced tumors among women aged 50 to 84 years in screening and nonscreening areas; and comparing the incidence

8. Breast-Cancer Tumor Size, Overdiagnosis, and Mammography Screening Effectiveness. (PubMed)

Breast-Cancer Tumor Size, Overdiagnosis, and Mammography Screening Effectiveness. BACKGROUND: The goal of screening mammography is to detect small malignant tumors before they grow large enough to cause symptoms. Effective screening should therefore lead to the detection of a greater number of small tumors, followed by fewer large tumors over time. METHODS: We used data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program, 1975 through 2012, to calculate the tumor-size

15. Influence of study features and methods on overdiagnosis estimates in breast and prostate cancer screening. (PubMed)

Influence of study features and methods on overdiagnosis estimates in breast and prostate cancer screening. Knowledge of the likelihood that a screening-detected case of cancer has been overdiagnosed is vitally important to make treatment decisions and develop screening policy. An overdiagnosed case is an excess case detected by screening. Estimates of the frequency of overdiagnosis in breast and prostate cancer screening vary greatly across studies. This article identifies features (...) of overdiagnosis studies that influence results and shows their effect by using published research. First, different ways to define and measure overdiagnosis are considered. Second, contextual features and how they affect overdiagnosis estimates are examined. Third, the effect of estimation approach is discussed. Many studies use excess incidence under screening as a proxy for overdiagnosis. Others use statistical models to make inferences about lead time or natural history and then derive the corresponding

Overdiagnosis in screening mammography in Denmark: population based cohort study. OBJECTIVE: To use data from two longstanding, population based screening programmes to study overdiagnosis in screening mammography. DESIGN: Population based cohort study. SETTING: Copenhagen municipality (from 1991) and Funen County (from 1993), Denmark. PARTICIPANTS: 57,763 women targeted by organised screening, aged 56-69 when the screening programmes started, and followed up to 2009. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES (...) : Overdiagnosis of breast cancer in women targeted by screening, assessed by relative risks compared with historical control groups from screening regions, national control groups from non-screening regions, and historical national control groups. RESULTS: In total, 3279 invasive breast carcinomas and ductal carcinomas in situ occurred. The start of screening led to prevalence peaks in breast cancer incidence: relative risk 2.06 (95% confidence interval 1.64 to 2.59) for Copenhagen and 1.84 (1.46 to 2.32

DESIGN: Qualitative study using focus groups that included a presentation explaining overdiagnosis (...) , incorporating different published estimates of its rate (1-10%, 30%, 50%) and information on the mortality benefit of screening, with guided group discussions SETTING: Sydney, Australia PARTICIPANTS: Fifty women aged 40-79 years with no personal history of breast cancer and with varying levels of education and participation in screening. RESULTS: Prior awareness of breast cancer overdiagnosis was minimal. Women generally reacted with surprise, but most came to understand the issue. Responses

19. Estimating overdiagnosis in low-dose computed tomography screening for lung cancer: a cohort study. (PubMed)

Estimating overdiagnosis in low-dose computed tomography screening for lung cancer: a cohort study. BACKGROUND: Lung cancer screening may detect cancer that will never become symptomatic (overdiagnosis), leading to overtreatment. Changes in size on sequential low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) screening, expressed as volume-doubling time (VDT), may help to distinguish aggressive cancer from cases that are unlikely to become symptomatic. OBJECTIVE: To assess VDT for screening-detected lung (...) cancer as an indicator of overdiagnosis. DESIGN: Retrospective estimation of the VDT of cancer detected in a prospective LDCT screening cohort. SETTING: Nonrandomized, single-center screening study involving persons at high risk for lung cancer enrolled between 2004 and 2005 who received LDCT annually for 5 years. PATIENTS: 175 study patients diagnosed with primary lung cancer. MEASUREMENTS: VDT was measured on LDCT and classified as fast-growing (&lt;400 days), slow-growing (between 400 and 599
