National Breast Cancer Coalition

Sometimes I hear that there are no breast cancer advocacy groups who question the benefits of screening mammography.   Well here's a rather large one:

The National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC)* is a powerful voice, speaking for women and men across the country, demanding victory in the war against breast cancer. In 2003 it was named one of the twenty most influential groups in health policy based on a survey of congressional staff-the only grassroots group and the only breast cancer organization to make that list.

NBCC has grown to include hundreds of organizations, representing several million patients, professionals, women, their families and friends. Coalition members include cancer support, information and service groups, as well as women's health and provider organizations.

Check out what they have to say about the recent Preventive Task Force Services screening mammography recommendations

  1. The news about mammograms is not brand new information based on one study that just came out. The recommendations that the Preventive Services Task Force (PSTF) released is based on research that experts have known about for some time.
