International health insurance customers might be keen to keep up to date with news regarding health screening.
Recent suggestions from doctors have encouraged healthcare providers to make sure that women receive information regarding the negatives associated with breast cancer screening, as well as the positives.
The advice comes as a study published in the British Journal of Surgery found that women who show an abnormal mammogram but have no cancer present still experience high levels of anxiety that impact on their quality of life.
Furthermore, they were found to undergo more diagnostic procedures than women with breast cancer before they were given the all clear.
Lead author Dr Lideke van der Steeg from the Department of Surgery, St Elisabeth Hospital, Tilburg, remarked that it is clear from common sense that early detection of breast cancer through the use of mammograms and screening is a good thing.
"However, while some women truly benefit from early detection, others experience harm and unnecessary anxiety," he added.
