Breast cancer overdiagnosis due to screening mammography

Daniel Kopans says, "Overdiagnosis is a myth that has been created by a handful of individuals who provide no care for women with breast cancer."

And yet according to one of the latest studies the cost of overdiagnosis from screening mammography in the United States alone is $1.2 billion annually.

Really difficult to put much stock in what someone with vested interest in mammography says, specially when there are others (without conflicts of interest) producing evidence to the contrary.
