Mammograms - A Little Discomfort Goes a Long Way

Mammograms – A Little Discomfort Goes a Long Way

It would be untruthful of me to say that a mammogram is comfortable.  It isn't.  It's uncomfortable and no matter how EXCELLENT and quick staff are at manipulating your breasts and body into position for the mammogram it does feel a bit strange being the only topless person in the room!  A bit like going to a fancy dress party and finding you're the only one in fancy dress.

My 1st smear saved my life.

It's true, my first ever smear potentially saved my life. Being in your 20s carefree, living your life you don’t think about these ‘routine’ things the doctors encourage you to go to. I put off my smear, not due to any fears. Life just got in the way of getting round to booking the appointment.
