Mammograms save lives

 I don't like to say I told you so... But tonight I have to say I told you so.

Now experts are saying mammograms save lives after all!

 It is recommended that women get regular mammograms once again.

Komen for a Cure and the American Cancer Society continued to recommend regular mammograms for women...

New findings reverse a theory that is now seen as flawed.

IN 2009..... For the first time in 20 years, a government panel told women in their 40s to stop getting routine mammograms and recommended that a host of other breast cancer screenings slow down.

The recommendation which contradicts the American Cancer Society, pitted doctors, women, insurers and radiology groups in a fierce debate about who should get a mammogram and when.

Again get checked and get regular mammograms. Early detection is the key to survival.
