The idea that breast cancer is overdiagnosed is being perpetuated in an effort to reduce access to breast cancer screening, according to a presentation at MBCC.

Breast density awareness is more common in women who are educated, had higher household income, and have health insurance.

A physician’s age may have an effect on his or her opinions about the effectiveness of breast cancer screening methods, including self-exam and mammography.
