They sent me for a mammogram. I can tell you the test is not as bad as the make it look. Is it comfortable? No, it is not. But it is not painful. The new mammogram machines have padding that make the test more comfortable. Mind you I was having a diagnostic mammogram and they needed to take lots of pictures.
The results were abnormal. I had a biopsy and there it was. A tiny abnormal mass. Yes, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The good news is that it is not spread and right now I am on remision.
The main reason I am writing this post is to motivate you to go have a mammogram. Insurances will help you pay for it and if you cannot afford it look in your community for resources. A simple test can pretty much save your life.
