New Mammogram Guidelines

Breaking News… on New Mammogram Recommendations

The medical staff at MenopauseRx, Inc. is more than a little surprised by the new recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF). For the first time in 20 years, a government panel is telling women in there 40s to stop getting routine mammograms. The MenopauseRx staff is not alone in questioning these new guidelines.Many medical centers, breast cancer survivors, and thousands of health care providers, including doctors, are upset with these new recommendations.

“The new recommendations reduce women’s lives to numbers. The task force panel expressed concern that 1900 women age 40-49 will need to be screened with mammograms to save one life. That one life could be yours!”

    What everyone is missing is that the USPSTF said for women of AVERAGE risk, you don’t necessarily need to start mammograms at 40. It’s another story all together if you are at high risk. You must talk to your health care provider and evaluate your own personal risk. Remember that if you live to 90 you could have 50 or more mammograms done. Radiation damage is cumulative.
