New Recommendations for Mammograms

The American College of Physicians has changed it's recommendation for mammograms for women under 50. This is huge!

They know say that there are risks and those risks should be discussed with the patient before deciding on mammography. The risks include: false-positive results, radiation exposure, false reassurance and pain during the mammogram procedure.

We have a few pages about mammography on the website.
