Dr Gilbert Welch - Dartmouth College, Hanover, USA

Dr Gilbert Welch talks to ecancer at the 2013 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium about the over diagnosis and over treatment of breast cancer.

Dr Welch discusses that over diagnosis leads to patients being treated with chemotherapy and other methods, when the cancers that are being treated, never would have arisen as a problem. In order to combat this problem screening and mammographic procedures need to be reexamined and evaluated as to how the help prevent cancer deaths.
