Mammographies are NOT ALWAYS ACCURATE

Mammograms are not accurate screening methods.  About 45% of women have dense breasts and mammograms miss about 30% of tumors in dense breasts.  Many women with advanced breast cancer go for yearly a mammos which appear "normal" and do not realize that they have breast cancer before it is too late.  Demand and ultrasound which can detect cancer--even in dense breast tissue.  Do not depend on physicians to order tests- speak up to get the screening you need, it could save your life.
