Abstract [en]

This article updates the results 20 years later of the Swedish Two-County Trial of mammographic screening for breast cancer. The result remains a substantial and significant 32% reduction in breast cancer mortality in association with an invitation to be screened. It is shown that the effect of screening can be ascribed to a shift in the prognostic character of the tumors diagnosed, that in turn can be used as a measure of the quality of a screening program. The results on prognosis also identify a group of small but high-risk tumors, with fundamental implications for diagnosis and treatment.
