Washington: A major review of breast cancer screening services in Europe, jointly led by researchers at Queen Mary, University of London, has found that the benefits of screening in terms of lives saved outweigh the harms caused by over-diagnosis.The results showed that for every 1,000 women screened every two years from the age of 50 to the age of about 68-69, between seven and nine lives would be saved, and four cases would be over-diagnosed.The European Screening Network (EUROSCREEN) working group, with members from nine European countries where outcome of screening programmes have been assessed, reviewed the estimates of benefit in published European studies in terms of breast cancer deaths prevented, and the major harms, in particular, the rates of what are called “over-diagnosed” cancers.
