Mammograms may be more trouble than good
A recent study published in the National Cancer Institute Journal lends support to the recent suggestion from some medical practioners that in that women under 40, mammorgrams are much more likely to cause axienty and stress than detect early breast cancer tumors and that the potential harm caused by false positives in mammograms outweights the potential for finding an early cancer.
The Cancer Research Foundation has focused attention on cancer and raised money for life-giving research. We...pay tribute to the scientists who have dedicated themselves to finding a cure and to meet the young researchers who are the next generation of fighters against this disease. The message we send today is that those who suffer from cancer are not alone and that together we can work toward a solution."Richard M. Daley
