Involving much older women in breast cancer screening programs may "lead to overdiagnosis and overtreatment" claim experts, following a study on a Netherlands-based national program that screened women up to age 75. For every advanced stage cancer detected through screening among 70-75-year-olds, around 20 "overdiagnosed" early stage cancers were detected. As people in Western societies are living longer, it is expected that in the coming years there will be an increase in the proportion of older women with breast cancer - the largest contributor to death from cancer in women worldwide.
