Today I ran across an article that discusses changing the guidelines for mammograms. It made my blood pressure rise! (see story link below)
If it had not been for a yearly mammogram at the age of 40, 41, 42 and 43 my breast cancer would not have been found until it was well past a stage I or II. My cancer wasn't there at the March 2010 mammogram, but it was there (8mm) in March 2011.
1 in 8 women get breast cancer and a majority of those cases are not genetic (so my cancer team told me).
Until there is a cure, fight for your rights! Its your body and you should have early mammograms.
