Multiple reviews demonstrated high variability in effectiveness and cost-effectiveness outcomes among studies on breast cancer screening BCS programmes. No study to our knowledge has summarized the current evidence on determinants of effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the most used BCS approaches or tried to explain differences in conclusions of systematic reviews on this topic. Based on published reviews, this systematic review aims to assess the degree of variability of determinants for a effectiveness and b cost-effectiveness of BCS programmes using mammography, clinical breast examination, breast self-examination, ultrasonography, or their combinations among the general population.

P reventive care experts have been divided for years on how to best counsel women on when to get breast cancer screenings. But a new study suggests that women might benefit from individualized approaches to mammograms rather than from universal guidelines. The study showed that not offering mammograms to women at low risk for breast cancer might reduce the harms associated with screening, while still maintaining the benefits.
Among women in the United States, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death. In3. This typically includes screening mammography for the general population of women, but also can include genetic testing and preventive medications for high-risk women over the age of This factsheet discusses breast cancer screening and prevention services, and reviews the scope of private and public insurance coverage, as well as access to those services for women in the US.
Little is known about the cost to Medicare of breast cancer screening or whether regional-level screening expenditures are associated with cancer stage at diagnosis or treatment costs, particularly as newer breast cancer screening technologies like digital mammography and computer aided detection CAD have diffused into the care of older women. Using the linked Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results-Medicare database, we identifiedwomen aged 66— who had not had breast cancer, and assessed the cost to fee-for-service Medicare of breast cancer screening and work-up during — For women who developed cancer, we calculated initial treatment cost.
Stronger focus on nutrition within health services could save 3. Correspondence to Li Yang email: lyang bjmu. Bulletin of the World Health Organization ;
Objectives: To evaluate the cost-effectiveness of US-based mammography screening guidelines. Methods: We developed a microsimulation model to generate the natural history of invasive breast cancer and capture how screening and treatment modified the natural course of the disease. We used the model to assess the cost-effectiveness of screening strategies, including annual screening starting at the age of 40 years, biennial screening starting at the age of 50 years, and a hybrid strategy that begins screening at the age of 45 years and transitions to biennial screening at the age of 55 years, combined with three cessation ages: 75 years, 80 years, and no upper age limit.
The national breast cancer screening programme, introduced ingave promise in reducing mortality of the most common cancer in the UK 1. Inviting women aged to breast screening every three years allows tumours to be detected at the earliest stage possible. This facilitates less aggressive treatment, improves prognosis, and ultimately aims to increase likelihood of patient survival.
The incidence rate of breast cancer is increasing and has become the most common cancer in Vietnamese women while the survival rate is lower than that of developed countries. Early detection to improve breast cancer survival as well as reducing risk factors remains the cornerstone of breast cancer control according to the World Health Organization WHO. This study aims to evaluate the costs and outcomes of introducing a mammography screening program for Vietnamese women aged 45—64 years, compared to the current situation of no screening.
