Myth #8: Mammograms are Dangerous and Cause Cancer
Mammograms don’t prevent breast cancer, but they can save lives by finding breast cancer as early as possible. 2D and 3D mammograms do require very small amounts of radiation, however, the benefits of mammography far outweigh the tiny chance of harm.
The value of screening mammograms was questioned in November 2009 when the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommended that routine screening mammograms for women with an average risk of breast cancer should start at age 50 instead of age 40. The recommended changes were very controversial and were not universally adopted.
