WATERLOO (KWWL) After recommendations Monday women shouldn't start getting mammograms until their 50s, the American Society of Breast Surgeons is speaking out.

Members of the American Society of Breast Surgeons say it is very important for women in their 40s to get a mammogram, and fear this new report will only confuse women.

Tonight on the KWWL news at 5, we speak with a breast surgeon and a breast cancer survivor about the importance of mammograms in the early detection of breast cancer.
