This study examined the cultural and linguistic differences in breast cancer screening behaviors among the aging Hispanic/Latino female population. This study was conducted using data relating to breast cancer screening behaviors among women in the 2009 California Health Interview Survey: Older Adult Survey.
Results revealed that age and visiting a doctor within the past 12 months had significant associations with mammography utilization amongst Latina women. This study further found that there were significant relationships between income, country of birth, language spoken at home, usual source of care, and having a doctor examine breasts for breast cancer.
