Mammograms Find Tiny Tumors But Are They Deadly?

A new study adds to the confusing questions about mammograms and how many lives they save.
It found that while mammograms do indeed find breast tumors when they are very small and presumably the easiest to treat, widespread breast cancer screening doesn't necessarily lower the overall death rate from breast cancer or even cut back on the number of biggest breast tumors found later.
"We found that counties with the most screening had substantially more breast cancers being diagnosed," said Charles Harding, a Seattle data analyst who worked with a team at Harvard and Dartmouth universities on the study.
