Angry I am outraged!

This is so ridiculous! It goes as far to say that doctors should teach patients NOT to do self breast exams!!!

I heard that on the radio this morning. I'm shocked. At my mamogram last year the radiologist told me that about 1 out of every 5 women WILL have breast cancer in their life. That's a huge number and to tell people not to have the test is just appalling to me.

That is nutty! I have known lots of women in their 40's who have had breast cancer.

What a coincidence that you posted this. I just saw a notice at my drs office that said women over 40 are responsible for making their own mammogram appointments. I didn't realize I was supposed to have them at this age (I'll be 41 next month. ! Well I am all for "better safe than sorry" so I will not be waiting.
