Regular Mammograms Benefit Elderly Women, Research Suggests

HealthDay (1/8, Preidt) reports that research published in the American Journal of Medicine suggests “regular mammograms benefit elderly women.” Investigators “analyzed Medicare data from 1995 to 2009 on more than 4,800 black women and more than 59,000 white women, all of whom were aged 69 or older.” The researchers found that “among women aged 75 to 84, those who had annual mammograms” had a lower likelihood of dying “from breast cancer over a 10-year period than those who had irregular or no mammograms.”
