I think they are one part of a diagnostic tool to check for breast cancer...sure women may be overdiagnosed but atleast they are not UNDER diagnosed

But wrongly diagnosed can be just as bad. You're destroying women's lives for no reason. That's sad.

There are other options such as infrared technology that are less known because they don't bring in as much revenue - group search for mammograms and some info should come up.
