Harvard Study Suggests Mammograms Before Age 50

A new mammogram study could raise more questions about when women should start getting breast cancer screening.  Harvard researchers are recommending women start getting regular mammograms before age 50.  They tracked 7,300 breast cancer patients for about ten years, and found 65-percent of those who died of the disease had never had a mammogram.  Their conclusion is that screening women before age 50 would reduce the rate of breast cancer deaths.
