Getting a Mammogram

Bookmark and Share

I had my first mammogram today. And you know what, it wasn’t so bad. Sure, getting your boob pressed in a cold vise isn’t the greatest thing in the world. But it’s pretty quick, and if you’ve given birth to a baby, believe me, you can do this too. My appointment was for 10:00 and I was out by 10:15. I even had the results. Fortunately, all clear. I won’t have to come back for another two years, when I’m 40. (40?!?! Now THAT hurts).
It’s sort of fitting that I had this done today. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here’s some excellent information on different types of breast cancer screening and the benefits of early detection. Here are age recommendations for mammograms. And remember to do your monthly self-exam. Sign up for a monthly reminder from Check Your Boobies.org.
