    ...Yes, they can detect stuff they never could before. And yes most of it is nothing at all.

    BUT, they are also needing to pay for the super expensive new diagnostic equipment and therefore will do a 2nd film (well, it's all digital now) AND then do a biopsy.

    The upside, of course is earlier detection of the small percentage of real problems just starting.

    The downside is the worry and concern it causes AND the expense. This won't be cheap by any means...and then the worry about the unknown goes on for two more weeks (a week before the biopsy...another week before your doctor tells you the results)...

    Ignorance is bliss only for the ignorant. The rest of us must suffer the consequences.
