Discuss the new mammogram guidelines

Posted at 9:50 AM on November 18, 2009 by Julia Schrenkler

MPR News is always interested in your perspective when medical practice and personal experience meet. The NewsQ Commentary this morning dives right in:

"A government health task force released a report Monday stating that women in their 40s shouldn't bother getting mammograms. According to its research, only one life in 1,000 is saved. If so, that life is mine and, not to sound egotistical, I like to think it was worth saving."

Share your reactions on the commentary: How you see statistics on breast cancer may depend on whether you've had it.
