We’ve known that radiation puts us at risk for cancer, but the newest one to add to the list is that mammograms may actually boost cancer risk in high-risk women. According to a Dutch research, the average risk of breast cancer from radiation exposure was 1.5 times greater among the high-risk women studied than the high-risk women not exposed.

Again, this applies to high-risk women. But this could very much add to the debate going on regarding the new guidelines on mammogram.
