IGRANA  here;
If you have not already dones so,Undecided please make an appt for your yearly mamogram!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Most  ( health insurance )plans   Medicare ,private &   employer provided  insurance  plans pay for it;
 Many cities offer (nearly) FREE CLINICS or other opportunities to get a  mamogram for  a fee adjusted to fit your income; (if you do not  have health insurance) Cry
It isb better  to  expeirience the" discomfort " of a mamogram than to  have to deal  w/breast cancer, left undetected too long...Please take care of yourself!!!Kiss
It is suggested that you have your mamogram done each year in your birthday month(easier to emember!!!!!!)Wink

Yes it is very important, in fact, I think they should lower the age.  Don't take a chance...just do it!  Yes, there is some discomfort, but the tech. is very good about it and they try to make you feel comfortable.

I haven't made my appointment yet, but I will have it done before the end of the year.  I think it is very important to get checked out.

Hi Susan K GRANA  here;  The baseline ( first mamogram) is supposed o be done  in your late 30's,  earlier if there is a history of it ( breast cancer) in you family or you have other risk factors,Sadly not al doctors are diligent. My own dr let it go tillI was42 yo when I demanded my first mamogram. He tried t oexcuse his neglect by tellling e that " I  looked  so young, he hadn't thought of me as a  candidate for it yet!!" I told d im "compliments are nice  but do not replace good medical care" & shortly thereafter found myself a new doctor, who often told e "how much younger I looked than my age",  but still pushed meto have a colonoscopy right on timeCool
PLEASE If your  own dr does not suggest a mamogram on time & yearly thereafter, please be  "pro-active" & bring  i t up yourselfYell.
My first mamogram showed a possible growthSurprised, it turned out to be benign ( not cancer)it was removed painlessly w/ a needle & local anesthetic.But it might have been cancer and a year's delay could have cost me myhealth & life.My sister-in-law thought "she  was getting away w/ tt" (she didn't want a amogram) t when her dr didn't sugest a mamogram;she develped breast cancer which was not detected until it was too late to save her life!Cry

This i why I am bringing up the subject  of mamograms !!!!!!!!!!!Innocent

I lost my Mom in law to breast cancer and a sister in law and my other sister in law had breast cancer and has been cancer free for 15 years now.That was mother and two daughters.I lost a friend to breast cancer and she was only 37 so it can happen when you are younger.It is important to be checked out.

GRANA...

Well GRANA, I am going through an emotional roller coaster right now from a finding on my Mammogram in Feb.  As of right now, the surgeon told me that she needs to keep a close eye on it and I will be going for another round of tests in a few months.  I was told to be emotionally prepared.  Cry

So please, do a monthly self breast exam and get a yearly Mammogram!  It's so important!!

Yup, mammo scheduled.....I'm a lucky girl because my hubby is the Imaging Systems Administrator for our local hospital and he schedules my appointment every year!!  He's so good to me!! 

My best friend from college was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 49.  She had skipped her yearly well woman exam and mammo and when she finally did go there it was, plain as day, on her mammo, breast cancer.....she was treated and is now cancer free but will NEVER SKIP HER YEARLY WELL WOMAN AGAIN!!!

And...my sister has stage 4 Anal cancer with mets to the bone.....another reason NOT TO SKIP YOUR WELL WOMAN VISIT!!!!  She skipped and ignored the signs and is now an advocate for NOT SKIPPING YOUR WELL WOMAN EXAM!!!

Okay, I'm off the soap box now.....just saying, please don't skip your well woman exam!! Wink

I have an aunt that had breast cancer. I support it .
Our bowling league donates to the breast cancer on
one night a month. Whatever we bolw we give a penny
for each score we have for the night. For example if
we bowl a 500 series we give $5.00. if we bowl a 200
series we give $2.00.

I started scheduling my annual physical right around my Birthday.  Since it is Feb I am set pretty much at the beginning of the year.  Let me tell you it is easy to schedule that time of year because everyone that has the Flex Spending Accounts have used up pretty much all the slots by the end of the year so the beginning of the year is pretty open. I get it all out of the way in Feb, Mamo, PAP, and if needed the Colonoscopy.  (Lucky me not due for that one for another 2 years.)
