Project Description

The effectiveness of breast cancer screening as a tool for preventing death due to breast cancer has been widely researched. However, the relationship between breast cancer screening and the type and extent of the disease at diagnosis has been less explored.

This project examines changes in breast cancer screening patterns based on geographic socio-demographic differences, the impact of using different screening methods and how being screened or not may relate to differences in tumor characteristics.

No report anticipated.
