Overdiagnosis in Cancer

Overdiagnosis in Cancer | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it

This article summarizes the phenomenon of cancer overdiagnosis—the diagnosis of a “cancer” that would otherwise not go on to cause symptoms or death. We describe the two prerequisites for cancer overdiagnosis to occur: the existence of a silent disease reservoir and activities leading to its detection (particularly cancer screening). We estimated the magnitude of overdiagnosis from randomized trials: about 25% of mammographically detected breast cancers, 50% of chest x-ray and/or sputum-detected lung cancers, and 60% of prostate-specific antigen–detected prostate cancers.

The study example used to illustrate the use of social marketing is a 48-week prescribed walking program, Madres para la Salud (Mothers for Health), which tests a social support intervention to explore the effectiveness of a culturally specific program using ‘bouts’ of PA to effect the changes in body fat, fat tissue inflammation and postpartum depression symptoms in sedentary Hispanic women.

JAMA - Changing Physical Activity Participation for the Medical ProfessionMedical Profession's Physical Activity Level

Giuseppe Fattori's insight:

Being sedentary is a way of life for many health professionals who have been in practice, as is true for those in many other professions. Meetings, grand rounds, charting, dictation, outpatient interaction, classroom teaching, and medical conferences result in hours with little movement and much less moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) at the level recommended by the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.

Risk factors for non-communicable diseases in prison populations : The Lancet

The systematic review by Katharine Herbert and colleagues (May 26, p 1975)1 draws important attention to how female inmates in the American prison system are significantly more likely to be overweight and obese than are their peers in the general population. Prisons have provided opportunities for improving health care for some of the most vulnerable citizens in the USA (eg, free HIV screening and treatment); however, the increase in obesity and the harms associated with it are ignored.
