Palpable breast cancers more common in women not having annual mammography
from Medscape Medical News
Palpable breast cancers are more common in women not having annual mammography, according to the results of a study reported in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons. Despite the frequent use of screening mammography, 43 percent of breast cancers presented symptomatically or as a palpable mass. "This study confirms the importance of participation in screening mammography, since a palpable presentation was least common in women undergoing mammographic screening at the recommended interval of one year," senior author Amy C. Degnim, MD, associate professor of surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
