It’s already been a year since my last mammogram, and here we are doing it again – which is a good thing. I remember being astounded the first time I had one of these done that my body could be stretched and distorted in such a way.
All kidding aside, I think it’s very important for women to have this diagnostic performed regularly; you never know. As far as procedures go, this is relatively painless and very fast. As for those of you ladies who should be doing this but keep putting it off, stop that! Don’t blow it off because it doesn’t run in the family, that your copay is too much, that you don’t have the time or you think the odds are in your favor. Early detection is crucial to getting favorable results, i.e., to stomp cancer’s ass!
Now after saying all that, I hate having it done. I really do. But, I’d rather catch any anomalies before they become growths or tumors. Ick.
So are you up to date?
