Les déterminants du recours régulier au dépistage du cancer du sein en France


  • Léontine Goldzahl
  • Florence Jusot


Breast cancer screening diminishes breast cancer mortality only if it is performed regularly. We study the effects of various socioeconomic and health characteristics as well as how the French screening system itself influence screening regularity. We specifically examine whether the screening modality chosen (organized or opportunistic screenings) influences screening regularity. Our results suggest that organized screening increases the probability to screen regularly. In addition, low-income women or those who lived adverse life events tend to screen less regularly than wealthier ones.
