    Researchers Question Mammogram Guidelines

    WebMD | Kathleen Dohney

    The recent guidelines issued by a government task force that do not recommend routine annual mammograms in women 40-49 may be having a negative impact, according to new research. If screening mammograms are not done routinely in women in this age group, says researcher Lara Hardesty, MD, chief of breast imaging at the University of Colorado Hospital, Denver, “I am concerned the only way the breast cancer in these women will be detected will be when they are large enough to be felt by either the women or their health care provider.”
