absolutely! The only reason we don't 'screen' women under 40 years old is because we haven't demanded it and because the powers that be ie the insurance companies who don't want to cover it and the physicians who won't get paid for additional work-ups are against it. I know of one breast cancer organization that routinely offers services to women under 40 and has a great program With 1 in 207 women under 40 being diagnosed and with breast cancer being the number one killer of women ages 24 to 54, we sure need some kind of system to detect it earlier than it is now.
