Most American Women Would Prefer To Get Mammogram Every Year Rather Than Every Two Years, Survey Indicates.

The HealthDay (11/21, Preidt) reports that a study indicates “most American women would prefer to get a mammogram to screen for breast cancer every year rather than every two years.” The survey of 731 women who were an average of 59 years old on average indicated “71 percent of the women said they’d prefer a screening mammogram every year.” Women “with a family history of breast cancer and a prior breast biopsy were more likely to be in favor of yearly screening.” The research is to be presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America.
