In the mail today was my reminder that my annual mammogram is due soon.

I have no blood relatives who have had breast cancer.  I have had no "less than stellar" results from previous tests, except that I have dense breast tissue.  Those were followed up by whatever "better" test that was suggested.  Still...all is well.

I’m 71, so I’ve had A LOT of mammograms.

Opinions, please.  Are these tests still necessary, every year?

The cost is covered, so it’s not about the money.  Unlike some women, I have never found the procedure unpleasant.

But there is radiation.

What say you?

You should check out the playlist of mammogram videos on NutritionFacts.org’s YouTube channel.  Dr. Greger questions the wisdom of routine mammograms.

Alan Cassels reiterated the message I’d heard recently of too many false positives during mammography screening and the low incidence of women’s lives saved by it compared to numbers screened.

I made the decision to skip this year’s mamo and threw out the reminder letter.  It lay on the counter in all it’s pink brightness, poking at me until I got tired of it.  Maybe next year.

My sister was just diagnosed with breast cancer at 77.  She quit getting mammograms after 70 because no one in our family ever had breast cancer and she didn’t think she needed to worry about it.  I get mine every year.

Fayeliston,
Sorry to hear this. What are some of the things/changes she is doing to support herself nutritionally?
