A new study adds to the debate about mammograms for women 75 and older. Researchers at the University of Washington found older women whose cancer was detected by mammography had a 10 percent higher 5-year survival rate than women whose cancer was detected by themselves or their doctors. Currently, The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force does not recommend mammograms for this age group.
And where a woman delivers her baby can greatly affect whether she has a good experience or not. Researchers from the university of Rochester looked at women who had cesarean deliveries at low- and high performing hospitals. They found women at the low performing hospitals experienced five times the complications -- including clots and infections -- than women at high performing hospitals.
