You go, girl...the update I heard this morning is that women getting mammograms too early may get false-positives and end up going through further "un-necssary" testing, when it might be nothing...we call that in the medical field as "ruling out a diagnosis"...I'd rather get a false positive and have further workup TO BE SURE IT ISN'T CANCER, than risk letting it alone and a year later I find out I'm stage 4 and it metastasized...we all know the outcome of that!!...sounds like insurance companies don't want to pay for further testing, ya think??
