Mammograms have now been stopped in a number of countries but as ever the UK and NHS lag behind the times.
We have discussed this at length before, the terrible statistics, the awful tales of women told that their Mammograms returned positive (falsely) and were then subjected to the conveyor belt of horrible treatments etc etc.

Someone somewhere is working on a blood test that will be able to detect numerous common cancers, including breast cancer. I hope they hurry up and develop it. The great thing about this is that it would detect hard to find cancers such as ovarian, pancreatic, oesophageal.
