Mammograms Can Have Negative Long-Term Results
Posted Aug 26 2008 4:31pm
I'd written earlier about the possibility being raised that
having a mammogram actually doesn't up your chances of surviving breast cancer
when compared with women (like me) who skip them.
Now here's an article on how false-positive mammograms can actually have
Negative Long-Term Results.
I'll also note that the new standard of care is now very up in the air about whether mammograms should be recommended for women 40-50 AT ALL. Ask your doc.
