Season 9 Episode 905 | 26m 46s

For years, women have been told to begin annual mammograms at age 40. But recently, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force said to push that back to age 50 unless you have a known risk factor. This reversal in breast cancer screening advice is causing confusion and anger among some women and physicians. 'Health Link' examines what women need to know in the debate over mammograms.
