Mammogram harm

A study with some 60,000 women published in the British Medical Journal, revealed that a whopping 70% of the women referred to oncologists after mammograms did not actually have breast cancer. An article published in The Lancet said that 93% of mammogram referrals to oncologists were actually false-positives. Yet another article in The Atlantic Monthly showed that up to 80% of positive mammograms were false positives. False-positives often lead to unnecessary biopsies, invasive surgical procedures and other unnecessary procedures, causing emotional trauma, financial drain, physical maiming, disfigurement and even death. How about this thought? Mammograms are also rife with false-negatives to show “no cancer” when in fact there is cancer there. A 25 year study shows that mammograms have not lowered the overall death rate from breast cancer. Yet we still do them…

Maybe they should be called mammoscams...
