Resumen: Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in Jamaican women, the highest occurence of breast cancer falls within the age group 55-64 years. This study sought to determine the compliance of women age 50-69 years with methods of early detection of breast cancer and the factors that affect non-compliance. A cross-sectional study was done among women age 50-69 years in Kingston and St. Andrew. Five Christian denominations were randomly selected and then one church was randomly selected from each denonination. Self-administered questionnaires were used as data collecting instruments. Knowledgable about breast cancer risk factors and screening methods was higher among persons with a higher level of education among those who received medical care at private facilities. Compliance with breast self examination and clinical breast examination were high (88 percent and 75 percent respectively)while compliance with mammography was low (39 percent). Significant factors, which influence breast cancer screening compliance, were educational background, income level, obtaining medical care from a private facility and having health insurance. There was inadequate adherence with breast cancer screening guidelines in this study. Compliance with screening mammography was low. The major barriers that existed to achieving a higher level of compliance among the women studied were lack of physician recommendation and the cost of screening mammograms (AU)

Título: Beyond fibrocystic disease: the evolving concept of pre-malignant breast cancer
Fuente: West Indian med. j;48(4):173-8, Dec. 1999. ilus, tab.
Idioma: En.
Resumen: There is a broad spectrum of benign and pre-malignant breast disease that may be diagnosed on biopsy. Some of these conditions place affected women at significantly increased risk for breast cancer, particularly the atypical hyperplasias. All health care workers should be aware of recent developments in this important aspect of breast disease. The classification, criteria for diagnosis, associated risks for cancer development and various controversies related to these benign and borderline breast diseases are discussed.(AU)

Título: The use of the rapid papanicolaou staining method in fine needle aspiration cytology of the breast at the University Hospital of the West Indies
Fuente: West Indian Med. J;49(suppl.4):16-7, Nov. 9, 2000.
Idioma: En.
Resumen: OBJECTIVE: The aim was to determine the efficacy of the rapid Papanicolaou staining method (RPSM) in fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology of breast lesions. METHODS: In a prospective study performed between May 1999 and June 2000, FNA specimens were obtained from patients attending the surgical out-patient and breast imaging services of the UHWI for the assessment of breast leisons. One-half of the slides from each specimen were stained by the RPSM, which reduces routine staining time by 80 percent (rapPaps), and the other half stained by the routine Papanicolaou method (routPaps). Specimens that were inadequate based on rapid assessment were immediately repeated. For each group of slides the smear quality, cytologic diagnoses and results of any related biopsy specimens were documented. The concordance between the cytology diagnoses and between the cytologic and histologic diagnoses was determined. RESULTS: One hundred specimens were obtained from 90 patients (M:F = 1:8; average age 42.3 years). RapPaps averaged 2.9 slides per case and routPaps 3.4; 71 percent and 77 percent of rapPaps and routPaps, respectively, had adequate cellular material, and 84 percent and 85 percent of these groups, respectively, displayed satisfactory cellular preservation. There was 83 percent, 52 percent and 56 percent concordance between rapid and routine cytologic diagnoses, rapid and histologic diagnoses, and routine and histology diagnoses, respectively. Non-concordance was due to lack of cellular material in 14/17 (82 percent), 12/23 (52 percent) and 10/21 (48 percent) cases, respectively. Of the remainder, 6 cases represented major diagnostic discrepancies in which atypical cytologic smears were confirmed to be benign lesions on histology. CONCLUSION: These findings show that staining FNA specimens by the rapid Papanicolaou method allows for accurate cytology evaluation of breast leisons at UHWI. The handling of cytologic specimens by this method can be an important cost- and time- saving strategy in the management of patients presenting to the out-patient services. (Au)
