Doctor Radio Reports: What Every Woman Needs to Know About Mammograms will air November 21 live at 10:00 am ET on Doctor Radio, SIRIUS channel 114 and XM channel 119. It will replay at 1:00 pm ET.

How early should women be screened for breast cancer? New guidelines say women don't need a mammogram until age 50. Many experts now disagree - fueling a heated debate and confusion among women everywhere. New questions about what age a woman should start screening for cervical cancer are dominating the headlines today, raising even more questions for women about their health practices and habits.

Doctor Radio is covering these topics and the latest news and information daily. On Doctor Radio Reports Peltz and her guests will cut through the controversy and the confusion, and offer SIRIUS XM listeners the latest facts, findings, and reaction from the medical community and cancer patients alike. The phone lines will be open for the whole show.

Guests scheduled to appear on the special include Marc K. Siegel, MD, Medical Director, Doctor Radio, and Ruth Oratz, MD, a board-certified medical oncologist who specializes in treating women with breast cancer and other malignancies, and those at risk for cancer. Stephanie V. Blank, MD, a gynecologic oncologist at the NYU Cancer Institute in New York City will be on hand to talk about the latest headlines and recommendations for when women should be screened for cervical cancer.

Listeners across the country are invited to call in with their questions, including: do I need a mammogram? Why? Why not? What is the significance of federal guidelines in my life? Are they something I need to pay attention to? Does my doctor? Has anything really changed? I thought this was a lifesaving test. Is it still? Will my insurance continue to pay for it?

Doctor Radio features live, call-in shows hosted by leading NYU Langone Medical Center doctors from a vast array of fields including: child psychology; sexual health; plastic surgery; emergency room medicine; cancer; heart health; women's health; dermatology; pediatrics; men's health; diet and nutrition; sports medicine; psychiatry; and more.
