Thank you ladies for being upset about this....survival rates for BC will definitely go down if people even consider these new guidelines! Insane...they emphasize early detection but won't do it...I too found my cancer with a breast self-exam 7 mos after a negative mammo...I now consider my mission to educate every woman I run into to do self-exams every month...I recently went in for my annual PAP and was advised it now only needs to be done every 3 yrs...I stared at her and said "even though I recently was treated for BC?"...she said yes but stated she would do it if I insisted....I INSISTED!!..someone said it right, we need to be proactive about our health needs and and the guidelines can kiss my ###...(excuse my French)...keep being your own advocate ladies....fight on!!!!!
