Risk profile of breast cancer following atypical hyperplasia detected through organized screening.

To inform its recommendations, the USPSTF initiated a modeling study to further assess the long-term benefits and harms of lung cancer screening and to evaluate different screening intervals and eligibility criteria.
Information about morbidity or mortality end points is not available, so whether these women ultimately fared any differently in their clinical outcomes is not known. Indeed, the CISNET models suggest that most of the benefit of screening women aged 40 to 49 years would be realized by starting screening at age
Decision aids for patients. In its guideline and in a new draft recommendation statement, the USPSTF recommends screening for colorectal cancer using fecal occult blood testing, sigmoidoscopy, or colonoscopy beginning at 50 years of age and continuing until 75 years of age.
