I have been reading so many controversial things on taking mammography….. especially unnecessary radiation.
Also, many false positives and that they do not save lives…..
I am going to be 79 years old. I am cystic. My mother died of ovarian cancer. (However, I do have a pelvic exam yearly.)
Do you think I should still continue with breast mammograms or cut them out completely….
I.E.:I think self exam regularly & a mammogram every other year is sensible in your age group. Nearing 80 and over 80 should consider mammograms less often.
