The Mammogram Debate
It also seems like there are more and more younger women (pre-menopause) who are being diagnosed with the disease. Statistics don't back me up on this, I know -- rather, it's only from my personal experience. But almost every woman I know who has -- or had --breast cancer, was diagnosed before 50. Maybe I'm just hanging out with the wrong crowd.
Hopefully, this issue will be discussed and debated more before they raise the age for a mammogram to be covered by insurance. We don't need one more thing to discourage women from screening for cancer.
