OK, what the heck is our president thinking changing the age of Mammo's? How many more women are going to die from this disease? I cannot fathom why in the world he would do this. What if it was his wife, and it was way beyond saving her, how would he feel about it then? Of course I know you cannot see everything on a mammo, I work in radiology, but, at least it is a start. I have a family hx of breast cancer, and death from breast cancer. I personally don't want to go through that, and don't want to see anyone else go through it. I am just really really pissed right now.

    You are not alone. As for the president he has different insurance alone with the rest of congress. They can have it when they want. It is only us little people that the NON Doctors are telling us what we can and can not have.
    It will be a sad 4 years for the USA.

    I'll guarantee it wasn't women doctors who came up with this idea.

    I totally agree with you! I started having mammograms when I was 35 because there is a ton of family history. My sister just recently got diagnosed because she was smart enough to have a mammogram. They caught it early enough. I was in total shock when I heard the news yesterday and yes, pissed off, too.

    Saves money. That's the bottom line, save money. It doesn't matter that the detection can save lives, money is so much more important than lives! Welcome to 2010! As for me I will still continue to get my mammograms on a yearly basis. In fact, I am due one now if I can just get time to schedule! On mammo day at least my boobs are a little bigger just from the pulling and prodding to fit the little things in the machine! ROFl!

    I don't blame you! We don't have a history of it in my family, but that doesn't mean anything either!

    i heard about this on the news yesterday and couldn't believe my ears. I mean, as many people get it and people that survive because of early detection, it is like a slap in the face to women and men everywhere. I think it is ridiculous. I regularly check myself and have since I was a teenager. Something my mother taught me to do. I haven't had a mammogram yet, but I will starting in a few more years at 40. I hope that women everywhere odn't listen to this and get regular check ups and chekc themselves.
