Predictors of competing mortality to invasive breast cancer incidence in the Canadian National Breast Screening study

Abstract

Evaluating the cost-effectiveness of breast cancer screening requires estimates of the absolute risk of breast cancer, which is modified by various risk factors. Breast cancer incidence, and thus mortality, is altered by the occurrence of competing events. More accurate estimates of competing risks should improve the estimation of absolute risk of breast… (More)
