There is no such thing as a "false positive" from a mammogram. It's not that accurate. MD's if you don't like that, develop something better. I had a VERY fast growing cancer, over age 50. Your advice could have killed me. Don't talk to me about numbers. I can only take care of me, and for me, it was 100%.
