My wife lost her mother to breast cancer at 51. Proper screening would have saved her life. She never met her grandchildren.

I have a family history of breast cancer on both my mother and fathers side. I belive early detection is the best out come for beating breast cancer. If the guildlines stay the same we will be missing alot of early diagnosis for this cancer.

I know many younger women in their 40's who were saved because of early screening for breast cancer by getting a mammogram. Including my sister who was diagnosed at the age of 43. She was able to beat this disease due to early diagnosis. This also goes for pap smears for women. They changed it to every three years. Had this been 20 years ago, I would have been dead!

All radiologic results communicated on the patient portal are between the interpreting radiologist and the referring healthcare provider . You should review these results only in consultation with your healthcare provider. if appropriate please schedule a follow -up appointment with you healthcare provider to review results .
Please continue mammograms at age 40 or earlier! For my two sister in laws and my cousin who all got Breast cancer in their late 30s. They would not be alive today without the early detection of mammograms.
Too many of my friends finding out by mammogram in their early 30's that they have breast cancer!
A 3D mamogram saved my life!!!
I work with a breast cancer early detection outreach program. We educate women to get their yearly mammograms at age 40; especially as we begin seeing young women being diagnosed with breast cancer. Breast cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death for women worldwide. This is not something that can wait a few years before being checked!
57 years old lost my mother in law to breast cancer....Please why wait? It makes no sense...Early detection is what we're​ after... Detection and Prevention...
DCIS was discovered at my first mamogram at aw 40 and 2 mos. I had breast conserving surgery and radiation. My treatment finished the second week of my oldest son's Kindergarten. I am eternally grateful that my doctor ordered the mammogram at 40.
I was diagnosed at 50 years old, but it could have just as easily have been in my 40's. Thankfully, when I was diagnosed there wasn't this debate about what age to start having a mammogram. I began getting mammograms at 40. Every woman should have the chance to have their breast cancer found as early as possible. If it was your wife, daughter, sister, mother, friend, or another woman, I want that for them.
I was diagnosed at 40 and should have been able to get a mammogram at 35. By the time I was diagnosed I was stage 3b. Maybe I could have avoided a mastectomy.
I am 40. But I have no story to tell, thank God above. But I do believe the earlier, the better, and wanted to sign the petition to help. God bless all who has dealt with or who is dealing with this matter. Peace.
At 26 I found a lump, my pcp thought it was probably a cyst and recommended an ultrasound. The radiologist said it was a fibroadenoma and I could monitor it with twice yearly ultrasounds. Luckily it was uncomfortable and I opted to have to removed. Found out through the pathology post surgery that it was actual stage 2 triple negative breast cancer. Then through genetic testing I found out I was brca1 positive. I have now completed chemo and had a bilaterally mastectomy. I am cancer free but early detection saved my life. A biopsy was not done at the ultrasound because “I was too young for cancer” I was one in a thousand another radiologist told me. Your mission is so important. Young women need to be taken just as seriously as older women when it comes to surveillance.
I met a wonderful woman named Elizabeth a couple days ago, she is 52. She has a depth of beauty that made my heart skip a beat. I haven't been able to stop thinking about her since.

After sharing personal stories and smiles, our conversation got deep. I found out she is a cancer survivor. Breast Cancer. In her early 40's she felt a lump, further testing proved it to be cancer.

She would likely not be here today had she not had a mammogram. Please, 40....not 50.
Breast cancer history in my family and checking from an early age defected at an early stage my breast cancer.
I’m a nurse. The sooner the better. Everyone knows someone who has had breast cancer! I think they should start at age 30.

I work in a Breast Center and we see women every day younger and younger with breast cancer. Some women come in for screening exams and don't feel anything yet there is something there and it ends up being cancer. If women have to wait until 50 to start Screening mammograms some of those women may never even make it to that age.

I have been receiving screening mammograms since I was 30, due to the fact that my mother had breast cancer when she was 45. A mammogram found two lumps in my breast. I was lucky, they were both benign. Raising the screening age to 50 will cause women in their 40's to die. I don't think women should die because the ROI for screening mammograms isn't in favor of the insurance companies.
Veronica M.
My immediate cousin was diagnosed with breast cancer in her 40's. How long she had is unknown, (deceased approx 48yrs old). Also personal knowledge of other friends and family members diagnosed as early as 20's.
Barbara S.
My friend Kim has gone through chemo and multiple surgeries due to having Brest cancer. Since it was not caught sooner, the surgeon had to remove limp nodes as well as her breasts. Early detection is extremely important!
Please do not change the requirement to 50 years old. I personally have two girlfriends who were both diagnose with breast cancer in their 40's. One of them had to go through mastectomy and was also given Radiation Therapy. My other girlfriend was just diagnose around Thanksgiving and is going through chemo before her mastectomy that will take place in March. In addition, my Mother was also diagnose with breast cancer but thanks to early detection she has won the battle.

I am a 42 year old with family history of breast and ovarian cancer. My doctor started me doing mammogram at age 40. Two weeks ago I went for annual mammogram, result was abnormal, diagnostic was abnormal, US was abnormal, came to biopsy and result was cancer. If I was waiting till age 50 for this, sure I was dead by then. Please don't change it. Is saving our lives.
SIGN THE PETITION
My aunt, who is just over 40, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thank God it was early enough to be treated, and she is now cancer free. A short time later my grandmother was diagnosed. Agan it was early enough and she is now cancer free. This hit very close to home twice in one years span. I have never cried for 2 days straight until I found out about both of them. I don't want people to have that feeling. If my aunt had waited she wouldn't have lived to see the age of 50. Please keep the age at 40, so more people like my aunt have a chance at a long healthy life.
I went for a mom gram last Saturday how do I get my result
Please change to 40 not 50b
This is me signing the petition. Thank you for informing the masses, It is greatly appreciated. Much success.
I am a breast imaging specialist in radiology with over 25 years of experience interpreting mammograms, MRI's and ultrasound of the breast. My job is to diagnose breast cancer at its earliest stage. The most lives can be saved by beginning screening at age 40 and continuing every year.
