New guidelines in breast cancer screening: the debate still goes on

17 Dec 2015 2:43 PM | IPOS admin (Administrator)

The American Cancer Society has updated the guidelines for breast cancer screening. Under the new guidelines, breast cancer screening can be started at age 45 instead of 40 (http://www.cancer.org/cancer/news/news/american-cancer-society-releases-new-breast-cancer-guidelines). At the same time, organizations such as Mayo Clinic and Breastcancer.org stand by their recommendation that all women have mammograms annually starting at age 40. (http://www.breastcancer.org/research-news/acs-guidelines-recommend-mammograms-at-45). Nancy L. Keating stated in an editorial in JAMA (http://jama.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=2463237) that the debate is far from settled elsewhere in the world.
