Hi Nina - I was disturbed by your article as it only discusses mammograms as a screening and prevention tool for breast cancer. I'm wondering why there's no mention of additional screening tools such as self-exams, and if there have been studies of the impact of over stressing mammograms as a screening tool without providing adequate information and education on other methods. I find that many general interest articles in women's magazines fail to mention self-exams, or regular physical exams by a physician, and just stress mammograms as if they were the only solution. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
