Annual Mammography At Age 40 Significantly Cuts Mortality, Study Indicates.

Aunt Minnie (9/5, Yee) reports according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology, a “screening mammography program that begins when a woman is 40 and continues on an annual basis is the most effective for reducing mortality rates” because “screening that starts earlier and is performed every year finds breast cancer in its earlier stages, which boosts a woman’s chances of beating the disease.” Study author Dr. Samir Patel of Elkhart General Hospital in Indiana wrote, “Breast cancer survival is related to many factors, but stage at diagnosis is a critical determinant, with greater survival at a lower stage at diagnosis.”
