Quotes

Dr. Scholz states, "With new imaging technology, the medical world has the ability to track, measure, and observe small abnormalities in the prostate, which saves men from having to undergo random biopsies which lead to misdiagnosis and overtreatment."
"We brought the report home, and I started gathering information from resources at Susan G Komen and the American Cancer Society on my diagnosis and treatment options. After much prayer, discussions with my family, calls to medical professionals, and calls to breast cancer survivors, I decided on a total mastectomy with a silicon implant. I took an aromatase inhibitor to block the production of estrogen for four years until joint problems became significant, and I quit the medication."
"How can women make an informed decision if they overestimate the benefit of mammography so grossly?"
Dr. Jane Bolin with the Texas A&M School of Public Health said, "It can prevent and hopefully find evidence that maybe cancer is present and treat it far earlier than many poor women can afford to be screened."
