Preview is only available to registered and logged in users.

Episode Description:

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and second most common cause of death from cancer among American women. The standard for preventive care has been the mammogram, and death rates from breast cancer have dropped 34% since 1990 largely due to screening. Yet differing opinions from health professionals about such screenings have raised concern and confusion, and some research has indicated overtreatment of breast cancer – from false-positives and over diagnosis – costs billions each year. What guidelines should women follow about screening? What are the risk factors for breast cancer? Is genetic testing a prudent path to take? And what are the risks and benefits of preventive mastectomies?
