Search challenge 10: strategies

Search challenge 10 examines the issue of how to decide on appropriate screening practices for breast cancer in a young woman whose grandmother developed breast cancer at a relatively young age.

A search that incorporates the main "components" of the question might look something like:
("Breast Neoplasms/diagnosis"[Majr] OR breast neoplasms/genetics[majr]) AND (inherited[tiab] OR familial[tiab] OR high risk[tiab] OR family history[tiab] OR grandmother[tiab] OR pedigree[tiab] OR second degree[tiab] OR heredity[tiab] OR hereditary[tiab]) AND (age factors[mh] OR risk[mh] OR predictive value of tests[mh] OR sensitivity and specificity[mh]) AND (diagnostic imaging[majr] OR mass screening[majr]) AND english[la] AND humans[mh] NOT (case reports[pt] OR letter[pt] OR comment[pt] OR editorial[pt])

A few good articles on the topics, drawn from PubMed and a Google search:
