Prostate Cancer UK-Local Volunteer Engagement

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.
