Abstract

BREAST CANCER SCREENING METHODS - REVIEW ARTICLE

E. Thenmozhi*

ABSTRACT

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women both in the developed and less developed world. It is estimated that worldwide over 508 000 women died in 2011 due to breast cancer (Global Health Estimates, WHO 2013). Although breast cancer is thought to be a disease of the developed world, almost 50% of breast cancer cases and 58% of deaths occur in less developed countries (GLOBOCAN 2008). Women who are at high risk for breast cancer based on certain factors should get an MRI and a mammogram every year, typically starting at age 30. Breast screening has a significant impact on mortality and prognosis of breast cancer. Through breast screening, cancers can be detected early when they are small and have not spread to lymph nodes making breast conservation possible as well causing reduction in mortality from breast cancer.
