• Stop The Madness

The American Cancer Society recently revised its screening recommendations for mammograms.

This recommendations are a modified and water downed version of the screening recommendations made by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force in 2009.

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has recently updated their recommendations from 2009. These recommendations are different from the screening recommendations from the American Congress of Obstetrician & Gynecologist.

The net effect is that women and increasingly confused as to what to do. My greatest fear is that women will start to disregard these recommendations and base their screening on hearsay or forego all together.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So why don't these respected health organizations stop the madness and deliver consistent recommendations to women.
