Torture Chambers

The mammography machine is undoubtably a relic of the medieval torture chamber.

Some say that mammography is dangerous because it detects lumps that were not potentially dangerous, and leads to unnecessary chimiotherapy. I have a simpler question: since breast cancer can happen after a physical shock, isn't the mammography itself enough of a shock to PROVOKE cancers ? This added to the X-rays, to the pain and fear before/during/after ! I told the lady in the cabinet that I didn't see the point of suffering like if I already had cancer, and slammed the door. I wonder if there isn't some sort of economical reason behind all this.
