Dr. Paula Gordon and colleagues at Sunnybrook Research Institute, The Ottawa Hospital, The University of Alberta and Harvard Medical School have written a new commentary, to be published in the Journal of Medical Screening this week, that confirms significant flaws in two Canadian trials conducted in the 1980’s which found that mammograms for women in their 40s did not reduce death rates from breast cancer.
Currently, the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care (CTFPHC) doesn’t recommend a mammogram for women aged 40 to 49 if they don’t have any pre-existing factors that put them at higher-than-average risk of breast cancer. Guidelines should be reviewed and in the meantime
All women 40 years and older should undergo screening mammograms if they wish to benefit from early detection of breast cancer by reducing their risk of dying or having more extensive treatment such as removing the entire breast or chemotherapy.
