While mammograms are still standard of care in almost ever country, Switzerland has stopped all screening mammograms since their medical review group found no benefits in the data.
Something to also consider is that the yearly x-ray exposure may also increase the risk of breast cancer, the very thing thing that the screening is trying to identify. One mammogram can expose you to same radiation as 100's of x-ray tests.
So what should a women do?
1) Regular clinical (seeing your doctor) and self breast exams. Remember 80% of breast lumps are NON-cancerous. If you do feel a lump see ask your doctor to check it. An ultrasound is much safer way to assess lumps without x-ray exposure and breast compression.
2) Eat a plant-based diet. Vegetarians have the lowest rates of all cancers
3) Consume a diet high in fibre and cruciferous veggies - they block the negative effects of estrogen
