A Review of the New Mammography Screening Recommendations From the US Preventive Services Task Force

A Review of the New Mammography Screening Recommendations From the US Preventive Services Task Force

Ratings: (0)|Views: 562|Likes:
Mammography screening guidelines have been in place for about 20 years, with input coming from leading organizations such as the American Cancer Society (ACS), American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the foundation of Susan Komen for the Cure, and the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF).
The risk for breast cancer increases with age. The 10-year risk for breast cancer is 1 in 69 for a woman at age 40 years, 1 in 42 at age 50 years, and 1 in 29 at age 60 years. The incidence rate of breast cancer has increased since the 1970s; however, recent data show that this rate seems to be decreasing, both overall and on an age-adjusted basis. The incidence rate in 2003 was 124.2 per 100 000 women, a 6.7% decrease from the previous year.
