Breast screening doesn't cut cancer deaths

24th March 2010

A study published in the British Medical Journal has found no evidence that screening women for breast cancer has any effect on death rates.

Researchers from Denmark and Norway said reductions in breast cancer death rates in regions with screening were the same or actually smaller than in areas where no women were screened. The researchers say that it is now time to "question whether screening has delivered the promised effect on breast cancer mortality".
