    JCO Glob Oncol. 2020 Jun; 6:837-843.Reid S, Donaldson-Davis K, … James K
  • CONCLUSIONS: Breast cancer remains the leading cause of death among Jamaican women.

The increasing breast cancer-specific mortality in Jamaica over the 5-year period contrasts with decreasing mortality rates among US women with breast cancer. This study highlights the critical need to address the implementation of a national organized breast cancer screening program in Jamaica and to focus future research efforts on the biology of breast cancer, especially among young Jamaican women.
