Changes in breast self-examination behavior achieved by 89,835 participants in the canadian national breast screening study.
Breast self-examination (BSE) behavior was analyzed in 89.835 participants in the National Breast Screening Study (NBSS) of whom 64.619 were eligible for annual rescreening and 25.216 were followed by mail after a single screen exam.
Among those eligible for rescreening, BSE competence scores based on seven BSE criteria significantly improved over time and correlated directly with reported BSE frequencies.
Among all participants, the proportion reporting BSE frequencies of >=12/year increased over time from approximately 20% on entry to 50% to 64% at final screen.
