New study questions value of mammogram screenings

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A new study questions the value of mammography screenings.

The report published in the New England Journal of Medicine says that about a third of all tumors discovered in routine screenings are unlikely to result in illness.

It argues that the increase in breast cancer survival rates over the last few decades is due mostly to improved therapies and not screenings.
