There is a lot of speculation going around that mammograms do not help women. This is simply not true: the facts show otherwise. Did you know that 75% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of the disease or any knowledge of other factors that would put them at risk. Thus, it is important to continue your yearly appointments.
Annual mammograms should begin at 40, as suggested by every major American medical organization, because 1/6 breast cancers occur to women between the ages of 40 and 50-years-old.
