One in five women will experience depression over her lifetime, and one out of eight will develop breast cancer. We evaluated the effect of depression on adherence to mammography in Switzerland, where opportunistic and organized screening programs coexist. We analyzed data from 3206 women aged 50–69 who participated in the Swiss Health Survey 2012. We compared mammographic rates among women with no to mild versus moderate to severe depressive symptoms. The effect of the type of screening on the odds of undertaking a mammography was calculated using multivariable logistic regression analysis. Women with moderate to se...

They also manage chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, anxiety, and depression. In addition, PCPs have expertise in managing multiple treatments, medicati...

Forgive the epithet, but that is a very accurate statement, and most would agree.Most, but not the vendors. In browsing through my years of navel-gazing, I came across several entries whe...

AbstractMany women diagnosed with breast cancer have chronic conditions such as diabetes that may impact other health behaviors. Our purpose was to determine if breast cancer screening and detection differs among women with and without diabetes. We conducted a cross-sectional analysis of a retrospective cohort of women aged 52 –74 years diagnosed with incident stages I–III breast cancer enrolled in an integrated health plan between 1999 and 2014 with linkage to the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results registry (n = 2040). Screening data were taken from electronic health records. We used...
