Controversies in Breast Cancer Screening Strategies

Therese Bevers, Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, Kevin C. Oeffinger, and Mary Lou Smith

A panel discussion on controversies in breast cancer screening held recently at the NCCN 21st Annual Conference included only a few controversies. Representatives of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, American Cancer Society, and NCCN disagreed primarily on 2 main areas: when to start screening (ages 40, 45, or 50 years) and frequency of screening (annual vs biennial). Panelists from these organizations presented the rationales for their respective recommendations.
