Screening associated with a 60% lower risk of breast cancer death in the first 10 years

Screening associated with a 60% lower risk of breast cancer death in the first 10 years

Women who take part in breast examinations have a significantly greater benefit from treatments than those who are not screened, a study found.

A study conducted by Queen Mary University in London found that women who chose to participate in an organized breast cancer screening program had a 60% lower risk of dying from the disease within 10 years of diagnosis.

They had a 47% lower risk of dying from breast cancer within 20 years of diagnosis, according to the study of more than 50,000 women.

The researchers said that this benefit comes from the fact that the screening proves cancer at an earlier stage and therefore much better respond to the treatment.
