Logistic regression analyses predicting physical examination and BSE at follow-up with cancer-related information seeking from nonmedical and medical sources

Physical examination (≥2 visits in the past 12 months)
Sources of cancer-related information seekingUnadjusted OR (95% CI)Adjusted OR (95% CI)
Nonmedical1.43 (1.00–2.05)1.15 (0.67–1.97)
Medical1.56 (0.97–2.51)1.02 (0.50–2.10)
BSE (≥5 times in the past 12 months)
Unadjusted OR (95% CI)Adjusted OR (95% CI)
Nonmedical1.63 (1.22–2.16)1.52 (1.01–2.29)
Medical1.58 (1.08–2.32)0.98 (0.58–1.66)

NOTE. Adjusted ORs controlled for baseline confounder variables (age, education, ethnicity, marital status, concern about recurrence, cancer stage, health status, surgery, radiation therapy, systemic therapy, following doctors' recommendations for tests, and Lerman Cancer Worry scale). OR, odds ratio; 95% CI, 95% confidence interval.
