***CONNIE AUDIO ON CART****
To confuse things further there is no medical agreement on whether younger women would benefit from mammograms.
Several recent studies show mammography can significantly reduce the risk of dying from breast cancer for women age 40 to 49.
Mammography is not a perfect science. Pre-menopausal women do have dense breast tissue which can complicate finding tumors.
Mammography can be so sensitive that it can find suspicious abnormalities that ultimately turn out not to be cancer.
A panel of experts convened last month by the National Cancer Institute was concerned these false positive results might create unnecessary anxiety.

The N-C-I panel found that women in their 40-'s should decide for themselves...and women in the CBS poll agreed.
Only 18-percent say the government should continue to set guidelines-- while 80-percent feel the decision should be left to a woman and her doctor.
Opinion changed dramatically though when women were told insurance might not cover the test without a government recommendation.
In that case, 72-percent support firm guidelines.
