The effect of breast self-examination on early detection and survival.
To investigate the effect of breast sel-examination (BSE), we compared the stages, survival, and the risk of death for 355 patients with breast cancer detected by BSE with those for 1,327 patients with breast cancer detected by chance.
The early stages of the disease were found to be more common among the symptomatic breast cancer patients detected by BSE than those by chance. the 5-year overall survival rate was 94.4% for the sympomatic patients detected by BSE, and was significantly higher by 8.7% than that (85.7%) for patients detected by chance (P<0.001).
