Any woman under 50 who had their breast cancer caught on a mammogram kind of wonders what all the fuss is about. Are we disposable? There are at least in NYC a decent size group of us.

So today's news that a major medical group believes mammograms starting at 40 is the way to go is a bit of a relief.

Still mammograms are not enough, they are especially imperfect in younger women with dense breasts.

But it's something.


  1. Count me as one too - I felt my lump at age 41 and I really wish I would have had a mammogram at age 40 as my doctor encouraged me to do.

  2. That's the way to prevent this terrible disease!
