New government guidelines for mammograms released Monday by the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force have left women feeling confused and the medical community divided.
The task force contradicted the American Cancer Society’s guidelines that say all women should get a basemammogram done by the age of 40 some women considered “high risk” should get a baseline by age 35. The cancer society recommends that women over the age of 40 should have a mammogram repeated annually until the age of 75.
The government panel of doctors and scientists concluded that getting screened for breast cancer so early and so often leads to too many false alarms and unneeded biopsies without substantially improving women’s odds of survival. SOURCE
Obama is already at work setting up what health care people can or can’t have. Sarah Palin was right when she said Obama healthcare had death panels in it. I thought Prevention would be the first thing to save money, but I guess Obama doesn’t think so. Or maybe its his way of saying again “take a pill and just die”. From what I see the government already cutting preventive treatments to save money and it will get worst. If the blue dog senators vote to pass the Obama health care bill then they are as crazy as he is and should be kicked out of congress! Are you listening BLUE DOGS?
