Mammography Saves Life-Beware Women Over 40

A new report finds that less number of women aged 40 and older are getting mammography done nowadays.//

This declining mammography rate could mean more breast cancer deaths down the line, according to concerned experts.

Mammography rates kept increasing during the 1990s, and scientists are disturbed about this decline.

"Maybe women need to be reminded that, despite mammography being a test that's been around for a long time, it's still the best test," said Dr. Jay Brooks, chairman of hematology/oncology at Ochsner Health System, in Baton Rouge, La.

"The bottom line is, fewer women are getting mammograms, fewer breast cancers are detected early. That means more late detection, fewer treatment options and a poorer prognosis for survival."

The Department of Health and Human Services, recommends women in 40s should have a mammogram once every year in order to be screened for breast cancer.

Several other organizations, including the American Cancer Society and the American Medical Association, agree on this though they disagree on how often.

Breast cancer in women is the most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second-leading cause of cancer death among women in the United States.

According to reliable sources, screening mammography can reduce deaths from breast cancer by about 20 percent in women aged 40 to 49.

This study is based on information collected from adult women between 2000 and 2005. Women over 40 were asked to give details about the mammograms they have h
