Physicians Say Women Need Clarity On How Often They Should Have Mammograms

In a Charlotte (NC) Observer (5/15) “Viewpoint,” Dr. Matthew Gromet and Dr. Nicole Abinanti write that “women deserve clarity from the health-care community on the effectiveness of mammograms and the frequency they should have them.” A recent update to the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations continues to suggest that women ages 50-74 should get a mammogram every-other-year. The article adds that that recommendation conflicts with those of “the American Cancer Society, American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American College of Radiology and Susan G. Komen for the Cure, all of which recommend annual mammograms starting at age 40.”
