The government, it wants to do it.

In the case of DCIS there's really a case to be made.

But I'm not entirely unsympathetic to those who see sinister motivations here.

People saw sinister motives when astronomers downgraded Pluto's status. ;)

Pluto's status downgrade was sneaky, underhanded, and an insult to the King of the Underworld. Not too sure it was sinister.

Quote:
"With respect to the definition of “cancer,” downgrading some conditions as no longer being “cancer” can and will used to justify reducing “unnecessary” screening tests (e.g., mammograms for women between ages 40-49)."


That - mammograms for women 40-49 - and other things like it, could be a problem. The specific age range bothers me, as I've known at least two women who had breast cancer at younger than fifty. One was my intro to anthropology teacher at the community college - she brought her wigs in for us to inspect and comment on when she began her treatment. If it's a duck, say so. At least, for me.

Like Whoopi Goldberg's Rape-Rape, there may be Cancer-Cancer. Pretty pink and blue H&E slides are only a surrogate for cancer.
