The New York Times reported that a massive series of studies — which included 90,000 women over the last 25 years — showed “the death rates from breast cancer and from all causes were the same in women who got mammograms and those who did not.”
The study was published in The British Medical Journal and tried to find if there was any different between those who got mammograms and those who didn’t.
“It will make women uncomfortable, and they should be uncomfortable,” said Russell P. Harris, professor of medicine at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. “The decision to have a mammogram should not be a slam dunk.”
