Description

Breast cancer is a major health problem for modern society. It is the leading cancer of women (excluding skin cancer) and is second behind lung cancer in female mortality. The absolute numbers of new cases of breast cancer will markedly increase in the next twenty years due to the population increase of women over 50 years of age. However, the incidence of breast cancer has leveled off at about 120 cases per 100,000 population per year (figure 1).

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Define the risk factors that may lead to an increase in risk for developing breast cancer.

2. Discuss the importance of screening, who should be screened, and when screening should occur.

3. Describe the different techniques that might be used (now and in the future) for detecting breast cancer including mammography, digital mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, and positron emission tomography.
