Performance of First Mammography Examination in Women Younger Than 40 Years

Yankaskas BC, Haneuse S, Kapp JM, Kerlikowske K, Geller B, Buist DS. Performance of First Mammography Examination in Women Younger Than 40 Years. J Natl Cancer Inst 2010 May 3;102(10).PMID:20439838 djq090 [pii];10.1093/jnci/djq090 [doi].

Conclusiones: Younger women have very low breast cancer rates but after mammography experience high recall rates, high rates of additional imaging, and low cancer detection rates. We found no cancers in women younger than 25 years and poor performance for the large group of women aged 35-39 years. In a theoretical population of 10 000 women aged 35-39 years, 1266 women who are screened will receive further workup, with 16 cancers detected and 1250 women receiving a false-positive result.
