Researchers urge mammograms for women in their 40s regardless of family history
Modern Healthcare

A new study says that women in their 40s with no family history of breast cancer would benefit from annual mammography screenings, a suggestion that counters the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force’s recommendation against annual screenings for women in this age group.

The study, which will be presented at the Radiological Society of North America’s annual meeting in Chicago today, found that women in their 40s with no family history of breast cancer are as likely to develop invasive breast cancer as women with a family history of the disease.
