I had a mammogram 3 years ago at the age of thirty-four after finding a painful lump in my right breast. After clearing up it was most likely fibrous breast tissue, my mind was put at ease. Yet, since then I've asked my female friends at my age to at least a get a baseline mammogram, even as a birthday gift for herself.
These new recommendations leave me to wonder how many women will wait until even later to get their first mammogram.
I'm even more concerned how these recommendations will affect health coverage for so many women.
What would Susan G. Komen think of this?
