Fact Sheet: What is Breast Cancer Overdiagnosis?
Our team at the Sydney School of Public Health, Australia, is carrying out a research study to explore women’s awareness of the term ‘overdiagnosis’.
We are interested in talking with women anywhere in the world who:
- Have been diagnosed with breast cancer, following breast screening
- Had no breast symptoms at the time of diagnosis
- Received the diagnosis at least 6 months ago, and were 40+ years at the time
- Were aware, or later became aware, of the possibility of screen-detected overdiagnosis, and have considered that possibility in relation to their own breast cancer.
If this describes you, and you would consider being interviewed, please read more about the study here: Participant Information Statement and contact us: EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FORM. If you agree to be interviewed, a researcher will interview you during one 30-45 minute interview by telephone or Skype.
