Sociocultural Deterrents to Mammographic Screening in Jamaica

Issue: 
Pages: 
28–32
Synopsis: 
The authors aimed to demonstrate the role of fear of pain during mammography and other factors including knowledge level, as deterrents to the participation of Jamaican women in mammographic screening.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Less than five per cent of eligible Jamaican women had mammograms in 2003. The sociocultural determinants and the perceptual barriers modulating screening behaviour in Jamaican women are unclear. We sought to investigate sociocultural effects, in particular, knowledge and fear of the procedure on mammographic screening behaviour in Jamaican women.
