Routine mammograms do not save lives: The research is clear

Indeed, routine mammograms over-diagnose cancer, which can lead to anxiety and unneccessary treatment. Information regarding the possible benefits and harms of mammography screening needs to be balanced to ensure women make informed decisions.
