Breast Cancer Deaths Continue Yearly Decline Following Screening Introduction

Monday, April 3, 2017
A recent analysis of newly added 2014 data to the National Cancer Institute SEER database by R. Edward Hendricks, PhD, shows that the breast cancer death rate has now fallen 38 percent since 1990. This downward trend follows the proliferation of mammography screening in the late 1980s. This decline amounts to 274,765 breast cancer deaths averted since 1990 — including 22,054 in 2014 alone.
