Mammography screening participation may be influenced by the awareness of an increase in breast cancer risk due to hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which received particular attention upon publication of the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) trial results in 2002. Our aim was to synthesize evidence on a potential self-selection for mammography screening according to HRT use. We systematically searched the literature (MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL) for studies reporting on the association between HRT… 


Effect of False-Positive Mammograms on Interval Breast Cancer Screening in a Health Maintenance Organization
It is investigated whether having a false-positive mammogram alters the likelihood of obtaining breast cancer screening during the next recommended interval and whether the association between false- positive mammograms and future screening is confounded by age, other risk factors for breast cancer, or previous use of mammography.
Mammographic Screening of Women Attending a Reference Service Center in Southern Brazil.
Use of mammography for breast cancer screening in the public health care setting proved to be accessible; nevertheless, the proportion of screened women was low, and they exhibited poor adherence to the basic measures of care recommended for breast assessment.
Postmenopausal Hormone Use, Screening, and Breast Cancer: Characterization and Control of a Bias
The data provide evidence of an association between postmenopausal hormone use and breast cancer that is not solely the product of a detection bias, and the bias could not by itself plausibly account for the associations in the data.
Survey of breast cancer mammography screening behaviors in Eastern Taiwan based on a health belief model
There were significant differences in the prevalence of regular mammography screening, which were related to different age groups, residence areas, educational levels, hormone replacement therapy status, and history of breast cancer.
Do reproductive and hormonal risk factors for breast cancer associate with attendance at mammography screening?
Reproductive and hormonal risk factors for breast cancer have little effect on mammography screening attendance, which may indicate a potential for under-screening of some women at higher risk.
Determinants of non-compliance to recommendations on breast cancer screening among women participating in the French E3N cohort study
Information on the determinants of compliance to the recommendations on mammography is needed to identify women to which public health messages should be specifically addressed and to interpret results from epidemiological data in which some breast cancer cases are detected through screening programmes and others are not.
Do breast cancer risk factors differ among those who do and do not undertake mammography screening?
South Australian women who participated in the population-based mammography screening have a slightly higher prevalence of breast cancer risk factors, and this also applies to those who undertook private screening.
Accuracy of Self-Reported Cancer-Screening Histories: A Meta-analysis
National survey data are overestimating cancer-screening utilization for several common procedures and may be masking disparities in screening due to racial/ethnic differences in reporting accuracy.
Effect of false-positives and women’s characteristics on long-term adherence to breast cancer screening
Reattendance was lower in women with false-positive mammograms than in those with negative results, although this difference decreased with the number of completed screening participations, suggesting that abnormal results in earlier screenings more strongly influence behavior.
Who has regular mammograms? Effects of knowledge, beliefs, socioeconomic status, and health-related factors.
Strong positive associations were found between age, married/de facto relationship, knowledge about and belief in the benefits of screening, indicators of health status and service utilization, and whether women had had a mammogram or had one within the recommended period.
