Abstract: Breast cancer-related knowledge, attitudes, behaviors and barriers to obtaining a mammogram were assessed in women attending a primary care clinic serving a low-income minority population. Although most women believed in the value of mammograms, fewer than one in six was compliant with guidelines, and there were considerable deficits in knowledge about breast cancer risk. Ethnic and age differences in responses have implications for health program planning.
