A new study is supporting the idea of women getting mammograms ever *other* year instead of annually because there are too many false alarms.
According to the study, 60% of women who get tested each year were called back at least once for extra tests over the span of ten years.
Those extra tests turn out not to show breast cancer.
Screening every other year drops those false alarms to 42% without a big risk of cancer being found at a late stage.
