Screening Mammography for Men at Risk

2019 24 Sep

A recent study in Radiology showed that selective mammography can help identify breast cancer for men with a high-risk. The rarity of breast cancer in men has led to little research on the outcomes in this cohort despite the high rates of mortality. Out of the 2670 cases of invasive breast cancer estimated to be diagnosed in 2019, the American Cancer... Read more

Mammograms: Are We Overdiagnosing Small Tumours?

2017 12 Jun

According to a Yale study, because many small breast cancers are inherently slow growing, often these cancers will not grow large enough to become significant within a patient’s lifetime and subsequently early detection could lead to overdiagnosis.
