PADUCAH — There are lots of new guidelines out there for detecting breast cancer.

New studies suggest women between the ages of 40 and 49 don't need yearly mammograms. Those over that age may only need them every two years.

We talked to a local OB/GYN about that new advice and other breast cancer issues because this doctor has an opinion based on personal experience.
