We evaluated the impact of individualized breast cancet risk counseling on mammography use among women at risk for breast cancer.
Participants (n=508) were randomized to the breast cancer risk counseling intervention or a general health education control intervention, and 85% completed follow-up Results.
In multivarinte modeling. a significant group-by education interaction demonstrated that among less-educated participants, breast cancer risk counseling led to reduced mam mography use.
There was no intervention effect among the more-educated participants, Conclusions.
These results suggest that standard breast cancer risk connseling could have an adverse impact on the health behaviors of less educated women.
