Regular Mammography Screening Linked To Less-Invasive Treatment, Study Finds.

Aunt Minnie (5/7, Yee) reports that “regular breast cancer screening, particularly in younger women, translates to less-aggressive treatment when disease is discovered,” according to research presented at the American Society of Breast Surgeons annual meeting in Orlando, Florida.
