An interesting story published by CNN.com regarding the recent decision by a government task force to recommend women in their 40’s no longer get regular mammograms:

‘I want my mammograms!’

Obviously, cancer can strike any one person at any given time in their life. It is always wise to conduct self-exams, which are easy to do in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Get to know your body, and if you feel anything unusual, do not be afraid to reach out to your doctor! If you are at higher risk for any kind of cancer, avoid the new government recommendations and take care of yourself. Get a mammogram! Even if the procedure is not covered by your insurance, the out-of-pocket expense is minimal compared to the potential risk involved with ignoring your health.
