New guidelines on how often to get a mammogram

"Doing a mammogram every year results in mortality reduction of about 40 percent. Whereas doing it every other year, starting later in life, reduces that mortality reduction to 23 percent.”- Dr. Lora Barke

The ACP says evidence shows getting a mammogram every year can lead to anxiety over false positives and tests women don't need.

Local breast cancer center questions new screening guidelines

"We're not saving any money by reducing the screening guidelines that have been working for us for the past several years. We're actually going to be spending more money and losing lives and how much is every life worth?" -Dr. Stamatia Destounis

The American College of Physicians released new guidelines for breast cancer screening. It says women should wait until they are 50 years old to start screenings, instead of the previous recommendation of 40. It also says to only get screened every other year.

High-Deductible Health Policies Linked To Delayed Diagnosis And Treatment

"As a result of the high bill, Susan decided to put off her 2018 annual screenings until she had dealt with paying off the bills from 2017." Access is just as important as the option to screen. https://n.pr/2IAElgx

Her employer offered only a high-deductible health plan; that meant she'd have to pay up to $6,000 out of pocket each year. Advocates for patients say this sort of underinsurance is snatching lives.

ACR, SBI rebuff new breast cancer screening guidelines

The thousands of lives saved each year by annual mammography screening beginning at age 40 are not outweighed by short-term anxiety from test results, the recall rate, and overstated overdiagnosis claims.

The American College of Radiology (ACR) and the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) said that they oppose new American College of Physicians guidelines that recommend biennial breast cancer screening starting at age 50.

New Mammogram Age Guidelines Met With Local Concern

"What’s frustrating for us is these guidelines further muddy the waters and likely will have an effect on patients not getting screened when they should be. By delaying screening until 50, you are actually disadvantigng some of our patient populations. Our goal is to save as many lives as possible." ~Sally Friedewald, MD https://bit.ly/2KnKO00

New mammogram guidelines released by a group of physicians Monday recommend women of 'average risk' wait longer to get their first mammogram, but a top doctor in Chicago disagrees.

Breast cancer survivor shares cautionary tale of relying solely on thermography

“I don't know anyone who I consider a credible resource or expert who would suggest that thermography in the absence of a mammogram or another breast cancer detection test is adequate to save lives.”

Thermography is approved by the FDA for breast cancer screening, but only when used with what the administration considers a primary test, like mammography.

Mammo screening, improved treatment yield huge impact

New research from Drs. Ed Hendrick, Jay Baker, and Mark Helvie
provides powerful evidence of the effectiveness of early detection and modern breast cancer treatment in saving lives. https://bit.ly/2E4vDnr

Over the last three decades, the powerful combination of screening mammography and improved breast cancer treatments has led to a sharp decline in breast cancer mortality rates and has likely saved hundreds of thousands of lives, according to research published online February 11 in Cancer.
