Allina Health surgical oncologist answers questions about breast cancer care developments

[Minnesota Monthly, October 17, 2023] Natasha Rueth, MD is a surgical oncologist at Allina Health with a clinical emphasis on breast cancer. Minnesota Monthly talked to her about changes in her field and what she wishes patients knew about breast cancer and access to care.


When the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recently lowered the recommended age for women to begin annual breast cancer screenings, to 40 from 50, she says it was a long time coming. “I will tell you that those of us in the breast cancer world always supported screening for women starting at the age of 40,” Dr. Rueth says, “because we know that an annual mammogram is the best way to reduce a woman’s risk of dying of breast cancer.” Read the rest of Dr. Rueth’s interview with Minnesota Monthly here.
