Personalized Medicine for Screening Mammograms

Thumbnail image for images (1).jpgA woman's decision about when to start breast cancer screening mammograms should be a matter of personal choice, not association guidelines. A recent study in Cancer looked at the differences in likely outcomes of various breast cancer screening guidelines. Screening mammography recommendations for early detection of breast cancer still differ between medical associations that advocate annual breast cancer screening starting at age 40, the American College of Radiology and the American Cancer Society, and others that recommend starting biennial screening starting at 50, the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force and the American Academy of Family Practice. The screening recommendation a woman receives unfortunately depends on who is giving it rather than the patient. This study provides information that a woman should know when deciding which breast cancer screening strategy is right for her:

Flu Vaccines - Important for Health but Not Without Risk

As fall approaches, flu vaccines are being administered to young and old to avoid the seasonal flu which comes every year. People need to know that although vaccines have eradicated many diseases, they are not without risk. While most will receive their flu vaccine without event, there are those rare occasions where individuals may suffer serious injuries associated with the vaccine. In 1986 Congress enacted the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Compensation Act. It is now called the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Act (the Program), because it covers adults as well as children to compensate those who suffer serious injuries following the receipt of vaccines as part of preventive care. The flu vaccine is one of the vaccines covered under the program.
