Mammogram Yes or No ?

DR CECILE BOUR, éditions Thierry Souccar

Be informed before deciding
Indeed, there are numerous risks, beginning with the risk of overdiagnosis, which can result in unnecessary and distressing examinations and treatments. Other consequences that can be harmful to women’s health should also be considered: false alarms, radiation exposure, treatment side effects,…

These risks are such that mammography screening is now the subject of a lively controversy in the scientific community. Women are kept out of this debate…

Because they were never given balanced data, some readers are likely to discover only now that the appropriateness of breast cancer screening is scientifically debatable.

In this benevolent book, the author rightly reminds us that the decision to undergo screening is a personal choice, which needs to be thought through.

This book is for all women who have questions about breast cancer screening or consider screening on their own or their doctor’s initiative. Based on patient questions, it provides the necessary information to aid each woman in better understanding the stakes of this screening, knowing its disadvantages, and discussing it with her doctor.
