I agree with you all. I can almost understand routine mammograms, but no self-exams??? I'm thankful every day that I had a doctor who didn't rely on a clean mammogram. I've been in favor of universal health care for a long time. This is making me question whether getting more government involved in medical care is such a great idea afterall... Don't mean to be opening up a can of worms there, but really! How could they make such an awful recommendation? I'd much rather have a benign biopsy than an undetected malignant tumor! How many colonoscopies are clear at age 50, anyway? Should we stop having those? And PSA's for men? And PAP smears? Let's find a CURE for it before we quit testing for it, for goodness sake!
Hugs to all... and especially those who might not be here without early detection!
