With several risk prediction models in development, it is also hoped that the inclusion of information about small genetic changes that increase breast cancer risk (known as SNPs) and women's breast density could in future help give an even more accurate estimation of breast cancer risk - and could help adapt the NHS Breast Screening Programme to offer more targeted, "risk-stratified" screening.
The report, published by The Lancet, said that data from 2,899 women screened between 2006 and 2015 was examined. To estimate the number of breast cancer deaths averted since 1989 due to the collective effects of both screening mammography and improved treatment, R. Edward Hendrick, PhD, of the University of Colorado School of Medicine, Jay Baker, MD, of Duke University Medical Center, and Mark Helvie, MD, of the University of Michigan Health System, analyzed breast cancer mortality data and female population data for USA women aged 40 to 84 years over the past three decades.
Mammography screening first became widely available in the mid-1980s.
Researchers have hailed the study an "enormous breakthrough", in the treatment of cancer.
Kollia said that if it wasn't for her annual screenings, the cancer may not have been picked up so early.
"Screening plays a large role in early detection of breast cancer.to allow the patients who are diagnosed early to have better and more favorable treatment", Schnabel said. Breast cancer deaths averted over 3 decades.
But Hendrick noted that only about half of US women older than 40 get regular mammograms.
In a new prospective trial in younger women (FH02) - led by Professor Gareth Evans at The University of Manchester - 2,899 women aged 35-39 at moderate or high risk of breast cancer due to their family history were offered annual screening across 34 United Kingdom centres between 2006 and 2015.
Dr. Kristin Byrne is chief of breast imaging at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.
Thirty four United Kingdom screening centres took part in the trial, finding that mammograms for women from 35 to 39 with a moderate or high risk of breast cancer were able to detect tumours at a significantly smaller size compared to those found in women screened later in life. Women age 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year. She agreed that, in keeping with guidelines from the American Cancer Society, women aged 40 and over should consider getting regular mammograms.
"Look, in my case, it saved my life".
Breast cancer is the UK's most common cancer, with around 55,000 women and 350 men being diagnosed each year in the United Kingdom - and it is estimated that around 5-15% of cases are linked to a family history of the disease. "My wife and I actually pay $2 for each student that comes to the game and that money goes to the Kay Yow [Cancer] Fund and is actually earmarked for women that cannot afford mammograms".
