San Diego Union-Tribune

The American Cancer Society has issued new guidelines for when women should get mammograms, the latest chapter in an ongoing debate on how useful the screening is in detecting breast cancer.

The society, one of most influential patient advocacy groups in the country, recommends reducing the frequency of recommended screenings for those with normal risk of breast cancer. They don’t apply to women at high risk, the society says.
