Dr. Kivinimi, an Psychologist from UB spoke to us about breast cancer screenning.  The goal of screening is to try to detect an illness before its symptoms appear, giving the person a better chance to overcome the disease.  The doctor stated that it is no longer necessary for women below the age of 50 to have a regular mammogram due to the fact that the majority of positives detected are false positives, and it is not economically feasible to continue to run these tests which in their eyes do not produce good enough results.
