Risk of Interval Invasive Second Breast Cancers

In a study published in the Journal of Clinical OncologyDr. Janie Lee et al. studied 65,084 surveillance mammograms from 18,366 women with a primary breast cancer.  “Risk of interval invasive second breast cancer varies across women and is influenced by characteristics that can be measured at initial diagnosis, treatment, and imaging. Risk prediction models that evaluate the risk of cancers not detected by surveillance mammography should be developed to inform discussions of tailored surveillance.”
