I'm going to continue getting pap smears every year. I have had precancerous cells on my cervix twice, so I'm not going to not have them now! A friend of mine just had his daughter die of cervical cancer at age 39. I'm going to continue having mammograms & ultra sounds every year also. I don't care what they say!! I worry for other women who have never had any problems, they are going to assume this guideline is OK. It sure the heck isn't.
I'm wondering if they are also suggesting cutting back on check ups with men for prostate cancer?
