Arrow Screening Guidelines from USPSTF

I have come across this useful information about screening recommendations from USPSTF which I thought I should share with you guys.

One thing I know that is different in this USPSTF recommendation is about Mammography. USPSTF now recommends against mammography in age 40-49 and it has recommended mammography starting from age 50 every two years for up to age 74. For age 40-49, it's for the woman to decide whether she wants it or not.

Feel free to add anything, so we don't have to look around here and there but please do it only if you are sure. This screening thing has boggled my mind too much as there is too much information floating around and I don't want you guys to suffer like I did. Thanks.
