Epidemiologic data and information on the mammographic parenchymal pattern (classified according to Wolfe (Cancer 1976;37:2486-92)) were obtained from 38,757 (89%) of all women who were invited to undergo mammography in a population-based screening program in Kopparberg County, Sweden, starting in October 1977. The prevalence of the high-risk patterns (P2 and DY) was significantly higher in women aged 46-50 years than in any younger or older age group. A univariate analysis revealed that the… CONTINUE READING
