BREAST CANCER SCREENING

Current research shows mammograms are stronger than in the past. In a recent study it
has confirmed that mammograms benefit for women in their forties and fifties. Women
feel confident about the benefits that are associated with a regular mammograms for
finding cancer early. However, mammograms can have their limitations. A mammogram
will miss some cancers, and it sometimes can lead to follow up of findings that are not
cancer that could include biopsies. Women should be told about the benefits, limitations,
and potential harms that are linked with regular breast cancer ...view middle of the document...

Getting screening mammograms are a benefit for women with no symptoms of
breast cancer would help find early detection and if necessary treatment could be highly
successful. The purpose of having a screening mammography is to identify small breast
cancer. The use of film mammography can be very hard to recognize breast cancer in
younger women and women that may have dense breast tissue. This is because the
women normal breast tissue have a density of carcinoma. It very difficult to tell which is
normal and which could be carcinoma. There is an advantage to the film mammography
where the contrast image of the breast can be modified and could allow the differences in
the detection of the tissues.
According to the case study in the text it states that sixty six percent of all women and
fifty one percent of women under age of fifty who has breast cancer will be identified by
having a screening test (Fleming, 2008). From my research I found that having a

screening mammography is a very valuable tool in the detection of breast cancer
especially if it is caught early in the stages to improve the survival rate. For women who
get a screening after age the of fifty have a good chance of reducing the risk of death of
breast cancer from twenty five to thirty percent and women age forty the data states a
very positive chance of detecting breast cancer early and great chances of survival.
2. Are the breast cancer screening patient outcomes between the Case Study data results
and the current data results that you identified better or worse? I feel that the case study
results and the current data results is better because by getting better breast cancer
screenings will help reduce the death rate with that type of cancer. Their is more advance
technology out their that helps detect breast cancer. The digital mammography is better to
get because the image can be enhanced to view the breast tissue better to detect the
disease. It allows various doctors to view those information electronically for further
evaluation. The film mammography is stored on film that is used for younger women
than women in their forty and sixties to detect the cancer. A mammogram is an x-ray of
the breast. This test may find tumors that are too small to feel. A mammogram may also
find duct carcinoma ,abnormal cell in the suitable in the lining of a breast duct, which
may become invasive cancer in some women. The ability of a mammogram to find
cancer may depend on the size of the tumor, the density of the breast tissue, and the skill
of the radiologist. Mammograms are less likely to find breast tumors in women younger
than fifty years than in older women. This may be because younger women have denser
breast tissue that appears white on a mammogram. A tumor also appears white on a
mammogram, which makes it hard to find. (NCI, March 2010)

demonstrate a...
