Study: Mammograms cut risk of breast cancer death by half
USA Today

Women who get routine mammograms can lower their risk of dying from breast cancer by nearly half, a new Dutch study suggests. “Our study adds further to the evidence that mammography screening unambiguously reduces breast cancer mortality,” said Dr. Suzie Otto, a senior researcher in the department of public health at Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The routine screening also lowered the chances of being diagnosed with an advanced cancer, she said.
