The new guidelines, intended only or people who have no symptoms of cancer, or who arc not considered to heat high risk, are designed to "deliver essentially the same health benefit as previous society recommendations at greatly reduced cost, risk and inconvenience to the patient," says Dr. Saul B. Gusberg, president of the society and gynecologist at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. The Society, for example, no longer recommends an annual chest X-ray and sputum test for cigarette smokers and others who might incur lung cancer. Thus far, these tests have not been shown to increase a patient's chances of surviving lung cancer, even though they may detect the disease in its early stages. The "annual" Pap smear is changed to "at least once every three years," after two initial negative tests a year apart, for all women between 20 to 65 years old and for younger women who are sexually active. It usually takes many years to develop cervical cancer from precancerous lesions. Thus, an annual test to detect abnormalities of the cervix is not necessary for most women. Other new recommendations include: a proctosigmoidoscopic examination for colon-rectal cancer every there to five years for those over 50; a breast examination every three years for women under 40; an annual mammogram for women over 50; a single "baseline" mammogram for women between 35 and 40 and as often as advised by a personal physician for those under 50.
