"Foregoing mammography for women in this age group as recommended by the United States Preventive Services Task Force leads to diagnoses of later stage breast cancers. We continue to support screening mammography in women between the ages of 40 and 49 years."

In the study titled Neglecting to Screen Women Between the Ages of 40 and 49 Years With Mammography: What is the Impact on Breast Cancer Diagnosis? the authors compared breast cancer stage at diagnosis in two groups of women between 40 and 49 years old: women undergoing screening mammography and women with a symptom needing diagnostic workup.
