Abstract

Swedish trials on mammography screening of women aged 40-74 years indicated that two to four rounds of screening could significantly reduce the risk of being diagnosed with and dying from advanced breast cancer.1 Because stage at diagnosis is independent of treatment efficacy, the trials concluded that the introduction of screening in general populations would be reflected by a reduced incidence of advanced breast cancer and mortality from breast cancer.
