Great story. This is why the American Cancer Society, and oncologists continue
to advocate for regular screening: it saves lives.It's also
worth noting that her decision to be screened violates what the Obamacare-minded
government-driven USPSTF advises. Should we ever adopt a single-payer system,
preventative screening, and aggressive treatment of cancer in general, will be
discouraged. Medical economists will drive decisions that were made by patients
and their individual doctors under our privatized system. The disagreement
between cancer-specialists and the USPSTF is a classic example of this.
