Mehmet Ercüment Döğen.

Abstract
Background: The study aimed to evaluate the epidemiologic data of our patients with mammography examinations, pre-examinations, and evaluation of them.
Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted by asking specific questions by face-to-face interviewing 500 female patients who lived in the suburban areas of Mersin between April 2011 and November 2011 and who applied to the maternity branch hospital for mammography surveys. The data are evaluated proportionally; numerical values are given in percent and n=n1/total number.
Results: The majority of the cases (87%, n=435/500) consisted of women aged 40-60 years. The majority of cases (80%, n=400/500) reported that the education level was primary school graduate or lower. In our patients, 54% (n=270/500) had no previous mammography screening, 43% (n=215/500) had irregular mammography screening, 3% (n=15/500) had a regular mammography scan. 55% (n=275/500) did not know what the mammography was and why it was withdrawn; 45% (n=225/500) did not know enough. Our cases of 12% (n=60/500) had a history of breast cancer in the family.
Conclusion: Collection of epidemiologic data belonging to the patient before the mammography screening will benefit the planning of future surveys, and it is seen that they are also contributing to the reporting of mammography.

Key words: Mammography, epidemiology, breast cancer, menopause.
