Screening Mammography Overdiagnosis Controversy May Be Contrived

Dec. 12 - Aunt Minnie: The controversy over the effect of mammographic screening on breast cancer mortality is largely contrived, according to study results presented on December 11 at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS).

Robert A. Smith, PhD, of the American Cancer Society in Atlanta, Dr. Stephen Duffy of Queen Mary University of London, Dr. László Tabár of Falun Central Hospital in Sweden, and colleagues examined data from four large studies on the benefits and harms of mammography screening. Smith presented their work at the symposium, which is sponsored by the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR).
