[Knowledge, attitudes and behaviours of women towards breast cancer screening]
AbstractThe objective of this study was to describe knowledge, attitudes and behaviour of women towards breast cancer screening methods in two regions of north Tunisia. Thus 936 women from Ariana [urban region] and 993 women from Zaghouan [rural region] were selected and answered a questionnaire on their perception of the gravity of breast cancer, the vulnerability of women, the efficacy of screening and their use of screening. The use of screening was significantly more frequent in Ariana for both clinical breast examination and mammography, but screening use was modest. This low use of breast cancer screening contrasts with a positive attitude to breast cancer screening methods. The factors positively associated with use of screening were urban residence, age between 35 and 49 years, educational level and the perception that cancer treatment had advanced in Tunisia
