Christ, every study of mammograms ever conducted has shown them to be a waste of time and money. The first one I read about this was way back in 1986. They are still around because the make a lot of $$$$$$. My wife refuses them, even though her doctor tries to scare her with breast cancer. Everyone she has ever had has been perfectly normal. I examine her breasts. There is nothing there but normal breast tissue and excitement for me.

Interesting. Last month I went to get the girls checked, since the dreaded 40 is on the horizon and the technician at the clinic told me they've stopped doing mammograms on women under sixty and prefer to do ultrasounds instead. She said things were changing and I would probably never have to have one in my lifetime, that even if I had a lump or issue, they would use ultrasound and x-rays to investigate instead of a mammogram.
