BREAST CANCER SCREENING

Breast screening is an open debate, and there are positions that go from denialism ( Cochrane Study )  which is reorienting the European position in general" Breast screening with mammography does not reduce mortality and increases overtreatment, so its usefulness should be questioned¨ "

to the vision of Breastcancer.org, which recommends annual screening,

going through the vision of the SEOM (Spanish Society of Medical Oncology) that recommends doing mammograms every 2 years in the age group 50-69 years.

Due to this variability of opinions, Dénia Medical Center also has its own screening protocol, which we have been applying for more than 35 years.

CEM CLINICAS BREAST SCREENING

Age of onset: 33-35 years: Only annual ultrasound, up to 40 years.
