    Early detection of breast cancer has been found in many sound studies to NOT notably reduce the mortality from breast cancer, but this practice results in large overdiagnosis, causing enormous harm to millions of healthy women (read Rolf Hefti's ebook "The Mammogram Myth: The Independent Investigation Of Mammography The Medical Profession Doesn't Want You To Know About" ). A pap smear for breast cancer, allegedly detecting breast cancer "years before it shows up on a mammogram" will INCREASE this needless damage to healthy women without any meaningful benefits to show for. If the medical profession's theories about breast cancer, including their genetic notions, weren't so unscientific, this hailed new approach would maybe make a tiny little bit of sense...
