A Dutch study of 755 women showed that breast cancer patients who had been screened with three or more mammograms were 49% less likely to die from the disease. Routine screening was particularly important for detecting early-stage localized tumors, researchers said. The findings, based on data from women aged 49 to 75 who died of breast cancer, appear in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention.
