New York (Reuters Health) – According to a recent international study, women who participate in mammographic screening are 60 percent less likely to develop breast cancer.
The research was conducted by researchers from Sweden and researchers from the Queen Mary University in London funded by the American Cancer Society and published their findings in the latest edition of Cancer.
During a doctor or a breast exam, the chest and its surroundings determine any extracts or disorders that detect breast cancer.
The examination is usually done by mammography and is an X-ray examination for breast cancer for an early diagnosis of breast cancer.
This screening plays an important role in the early diagnosis of breast cancer and contributes to the reduction of mortality from the disease.
In Sweden, 52,438 women aged 40-69 have studied the benefits of screening for breast cancer in order to reduce the risk of death from breast cancer. During the period from 1977 to 2015, 39 years have been researched.
