Women lack education on harms, benefits of breast cancer screening

June 27, 2017

Women are more likely to know of the benefits of mammography screening, but are not aware of the potential harms, indicating that they lack balanced information from physicians and public health officials that often only emphasize the benefits of breast cancer screening, according to findings published in JAMA Internal Medicine.

“It is not well known how women in the general U.S. public perceive the benefits and harms of mammography screening,” Jiani Yu, BA, from the division of health policy and management at University of Minnesota School of Public Health, and colleagues wrote. “Previous research has been published on public enthusiasm for screening and underestimates of harms, but these findings may be outdated.”
