Zafer Kılbaş, Ramazan Yıldız, Erkan Öztürk.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer of women, and it ranks as the second leading cause of cancer death in women. Although breast cancer incidence in western countries is higher than developping countries, very favorable survival rates in the developed countries have been attributed to early detection by screening. Despite screening mammography have been used for a long time, there is not a strong consensus related to when to start?, how frequently to screen?, and when to finish screening. Many factors including the risk stratification of patient, incidence of breast cancer, social and economic status, the availability of mammography and medical team should be considered when creating national screening programs. Today, the most effective way to reduce breast cancer mortality is early diagnosis and treatment. By the help of effective screening programmes and organizations related to breast cancer awareness, downstaging of breast cancer and reduction in mortality rate in community could be possible.
