For years doctors and medical researchers have been fighting over whether or not breast exams and mammograms were worth the time, risk, and cost associated with them for women over 40 and today we have solid proof that they are worth it. The report published this week shows that those women that do receive consistent and frequent mammograms are significantly less likely to have major developers of cancer go undetected.
Breast cancer is a big problem and without routine screening it is nearly impossible to do anything about. That is precisely why doctors are now saying that mammograms and other screening methods are most definitely worth the time and money every single year. As more and more women have began to routinely get screened they’ve shown significant reductions in late detection of breast cancer which is great news for everyone.
Perhaps the only major drawback to frequent testing reported was the increased chance of false positive reports. Doctors say these are far from common and overall the risk is most definitely worth the time given how significant the potential reward can be. Doctors are now encouraging women to have a mammogram as often as possible to increase the length of their lives. A simple mammogram really can drastically change and save lives which is absolutely amazing news for anyone and everyone. Doctors and medical experts say this could be the best step forward in breast cancer research and it is also one of the simplest to do so do your part today.
