For decades, women have been told that mammograms save lives. Yet many scientists say that this is in fact not true. Conspiracy of Hope reveals how breast cancer screening was introduced in the US before there was any good evidence it made any difference, and an unfounded belief in early detection caught on quickly in Canada and other developed countries. Today the evidence is starkly clear. Screening does more harm than good. Still women, and their doctors, continue to buy

Breast cancer is the leading site of new cancer cases in women. Breast cancer detection is currently primarily based on physical examination by health care professionals, chance findings by women, breast self-examination and mammography used for diagnosis or for routine screening. Early enough detection through mass screening with mammography has been introduced in many countries in the hope that early intervention would lead to reduced mortality and less aggressive treatment. The aim of this publication is to provide an independent,

A Working Group of 29 independent international experts from 16 countries, convened by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in November 2014, reviewed the scientific evidence and assessed the cancer-preventive and adverse effects of various methods of screening for breast cancer. This publication provides an important update of the landmark 2002 IARC Handbook on Breast Cancer Screening, in light of recent improvements in treatment outcomes for late-stage breast cancer and recent data on the effectiveness of organized screening programs.

First Prize, BMA Medical Book Awards 2013 Breast cancers are now detected earlier and are thus more likely to be confined to the breast itself and regional nodes. Many of these tumours will have minimal proclivity for hematogenous dissemination and formation of micrometastases. On the other hand, some patients have micrometastatic diseases which can remain dormant and be activated many years after initial diagnosis. Early Breast Cancer: From Screening to Multidisciplinary Management discusses the principles and practice of breast cancer management

The outlook for women with breast cancer has improved in recent years. Due to the combination of improved treatments and the benefits of mammography screening, breast cancer mortality has decreased steadily since 1989. Yet breast cancer remains a major problem, second only to lung cancer as a leading cause of death from cancer for women. To date, no means to prevent breast cancer has been discovered and experience has shown that treatments are most effective when a cancer is detected early,

The information already available from the principal overseas trials led us to conclude that deaths from breast cancer in women aged 50-64 years who are offered screening by mammography can be reduced by one third or more. Highquality single medio-lateral oblique view mammography has been shown to be an effective method in reducing mortality from breast cancer and we conclude that initially this is the preferred option for the development of mass population screening. The priority of any screening programme

Each year more than 180,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in women in the U.S. If cancer is detected when small and local, treatment options are less dangerous, intrusive, and costly-and more likely to lead to a cure. Yet those simple facts belie the complexity of developing and disseminating acceptable techniques for breast cancer diagnosis. Even the most exciting new technologies remain clouded with uncertainty. Mammography and Beyond provides a comprehensive and up-to-date perspective on the state of
