Although some basic amenities for breast cancer screening are recognized in Iran, mammography utilization rate is low when compared with other devolved countries. We employed psycho-social determinants and socio-demographic characteristics to investigate factors associated with adherence to mammography among 400 women asymptomatic of breast cancer. This cross-sectional study took place at the four outpatient clinics of the general hospitals of Tehran during the period from July through October, 2009. The results showed that obtaining a mammogram was associated with greater self efficacy and women?s occupation. This study also demonstrated that the role of occupation in the decision to obtain a mammogram was highlighted by the interaction between women?s occupation and self-efficacy. Psycho-social factors and definite demographic attributes are crucial in the development of health seeking behavior and achievement of tailored interventions among Iranian women. Health planning needs to be decentralized and diverse populations such as jobless, illiterate, and low-income women should be considered as a priority in the future interventions. Keywords: Breast cancer screening; Mammography screening; Psycho-social factors; Demographic factors.
