چکیده
BACKGROUND The breast cancer screening (BCS) chart is suggested as a basic and preliminary tool to improve efficiency of screening mammography. METHODS We conducted this case–control study in 2016 and enrolled 1422 women aged 30–75 years, including 506 women with breast cancer (cases) and 916 women without breast cancer (controls). We developed the BCS chart using a multiple logistic regression analysis. We combined the risks of breast cancer to predict the individual risk of breast cancer. Then, we stratified and colored the predicted risk probabilities as follows: <05% (green), 05–09% (yellow), 10–14% (orange), 15–19% (red), 20–24% (brown) and ≥25% (black). RESULTS The BCS chart provides the risk probability of breast cancer, based on age, body mass index, late menopause, having a benign breast disease and a positive family history of breast cancer among the first-degree or the second/third-degree relatives. According to this chart, an individual can be classified in a category of low risk (green), medium risk (yellow and orange), high risk (red and brown) and very high risk (black) for breast cancer. CONCLUSIONS This chart is a flexible and easy to use tool that can detect high-risk subjects and make the screening program more efficient and productive.
