The issue of subgroup analysis: The population-based randomized controlled trials were all designed to have sufficient statistical power to evaluate the impact of early detection on mortality from breast cancer within the age group selected. However, when the populations were inappropriately subdivided into age cohorts of unequal size (40–49 vs. 50–69), the younger, smaller cohort with lower breast cancer incidence had insufficient statistical power. The resulting lack of a statistically significant decrease in mortality within individual age subgroups was erroneously interpreted as evidence of no impact at ages below 50 years, despite the existence of clear trends towards fewer advanced tumors and decreased mortality.

60 y/o with no risk factors. 7 %. The 30 y/o easily qualifies for annual breast MRI based on her lifetime risk. But the 60 y/o who is three times as likely to develop breast cancer during the next 10 years and thus benefit more clearly from breast MRI does not qualify. Worse perhaps, the 60 y/o with no risk factors has the same probability for breast cancer as the easily qualifying 30 y/o for the next 10 years. Yet, the 60-year-old is actively discouraged by the guidelines, which expressly advise against MRI in women with less than 15 % lifetime risk.

Originally, a “10 % risk for mutation” (20 % in the United Kingdom) was the defining threshold for testing consideration, but this has become more of an informal guide, as we increasingly rely on described patterns for the family history, be it NCCN guidelines or third-party payor guidelines, to identify candidates for testing. Finally, given the paradoxes and complexities covered in this chapter, we should heighten our focus on the need to improve screening and diagnosis such that all women benefit equally, remembering that baseline risk is considerable.
