Breast cancer incidence increases from the age of 30 years. As this age range coincides with that in which women usually pursue pregnancy, undergoing medical examinations for conditions such as breast cancer is a concern, especially when pregnancy is uncertain during the first eight weeks. Moreover, in this age range, breast often exhibits a high density, thus compromising diagnosis. For such density, digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) provides a more accurate diagnosis than 2D mammography given its higher sensitivity and specificity.

This study investigates the impact of educational intervention based on the integrated behavioral model on breast cancer screening behavior in women in Karaj City, 2016.Methods: This semi ‑experimental study was conducted on 138 women who were attended to health centers in Mohammad Shahr city. The samples were selected using cluster sampling and were randomly divided into two groups, experimental and control group. Data gathering tool was a four‑part questionnaire (demographic ch aracteristics, knowledge, Champion’s Health Belief Scale, subjective norms). Two 50 ‑min sessions were held for educational intervent...

Abstract Although annual MRI-screening has improved early diagnosis of hereditary breast-cancer, fast growth-rates of BRCA1-associated cancers can still lead to interval cancers, and/or node-positive disease. Using MRI with shorter screening intervals helps to effectively avoid both, interval cancers and node-positive stages, whereas there is no role for mammography in these women.

ConclusionsOur report showed a relatively higher incidence rate of occult cancer at 11.3% in PM specimens despite thorough pre-operative radiological evaluations, which included a breast MRI. Considering the occult cancer rates and the various pathological methods of our study and published studies, we propose the necessity of a histopathological protocol.

ConclusionThis study illustrates the complementary benefits of mammography and BUS, especially where breast density is high. Tumours diagnosed by BUS alone had better prognostic features in terms of size, lymphovascular invasion, lymph node status, differentiation and hormone receptors, compared with cancers where all three modalities were positive.

ConclusionsAlthough all patients with breast cancer stand to benefit from advances in breast cancer therapy, the current results demonstrate that women who have participated in mammography screening obtain a significantly greater benefit from the therapy available at the time of diagnosis than do those who have not participated.
