👉The first guidelines ever released for screening mammography for older survivors of breast cancer (>75 years) recommend that routine mammography be discontinued for women whose life expectancy is less than 5 years but that screening continue for those whose life expectancy is more than 10 years.
👉For women who have a life expectancy of 5 to 10 years, the guidelines recommend that consideration be given to discontinuing mammography.
👉Overall, the guidelines encourage shared decision making that is individualized for each woman after weighing the benefits and harms associated with surveillance mammography and patient preferences.
👉The panel also recommended that patients with clinical findings and symptoms receive ongoing clinical breast examinations and diagnostic mammography and that patients be reassured that these practices will continue.
👉Guidelines on breast cancer screening for healthy women already “acknowledge the limitations of mammograms and the need to consider one’s health status and preferences when making decisions on how and when to stop routine mammograms.
