    • Medicine

Should I get a mammogram? A major study out of Australia spanning decades and including tens of thousands of women has concluded that mammograms do not correlate with better survival in the face of breast cancer.

This along with other accumulating evidence raises questions regarding the dogma of universal mammograms. Who should get mammograms? What are the benefits of acquiring them? Are there better alternatives? Just as importantly, what things can be done to reduce the risk of acquiring breast cancer?

These questions are addressed in this provocative podcast that will give listeners the opportunity to consider an alternative to the current recommendations regarding breast cancer screening
