STUDY DESIGN AND VALIDITY * This cohort study examined follow-up BCDDP
data collected between 1980 and 1995.
In the younger age group, continuing analysis of the HIP and BCDDP
data would indicate that the benefit of screening increases with the length of follow up,[4,5,9,10] although there is still lack of agreement due to the marginal cost-benefit ratio.
Breast Cancer Detection Demonstration Project (BCDDP
)  showed that annual screening of women aged 55-65 years with physical examination and mammography yielded a marginal cost of $22,000 per life year saved.
