Guess where I am off to today?

I'm sorry but this one cracked me up! So many women can relate to this...

I am actually three months later this year for my yearly Mammo.
I hate it!
I get such anxiety over it, it is ridiculous.
I have decided this year, I put out to the Universe that I have no time for anything to be wrong!
Let's hope it sticks.  I have had recalls, because of my breasts being dense. Which is a common thing for women under 50.
So much controversy whether to go every year or every other year.
I know women who are under 50 whom have had breast I figure why take a chance. 

If early detected, that is your best chance of survival.
Have you had your yearly Mammo?
And here is an idea for next years Halloween costume..calling all guys!

The cartoons are funny! My thoughts will be with you today, Debbie. I keep having to go back every 6 months now because I have fibrous tissue that is not calcifications. It is making me a nervous wreck!

I just made may appointment yesterday for April. I am late, too because I had to find a new ob/gyn first and get that appointment made since they have to write an order for the mammo. I don't mind having it done. That first pic is soooo funny. That is what Mr. S will be doing with mine. They are almost there!!

Those cartoon & pics are hysterical! I know it's no fun at all, but it's one of those things you just gotta do!

I'll have to start going here in c couple years when I turn 35 since my Grandma passed away due to breast cancer :(

Go do something fun afterwards like reward yourself with a fancy coffee or something!

OMG Debbie, this made me day!!!!

And I'm SO glad you are going! You NEVER know!!

My step-mother is only 48 years old and just had her mammo a couple months ago because her doctor refused to refill her hormone prescription until she did.

Well, sure enough she had a lump! And it turned out to be stage 1 breast cancer. She is having it removed TODAY ironically. She should actually be in surgery as I type this.

She has no family history and is really still quite whether we like it or is SOOOO important to do.

Good luck today!!!

Debbie I always enjoy the cartoons when its my time for the mammo! I sing to the girl, squish it, squish it good! Since I had a recall once for a unclear pic....worth the pain and I'm always positive because mammo's save lives! hugs!!

Oh Debbie, you are hilarious. As a matter of fact I am about 4 months past due for mine. I have been called back for the same reason, but is always stressful, you just never know. My aunt died from breast cancer, so I try to be diligent.
Have a happy mammo day :)

I had my baseline at 30, as my son must have elbowed me in the boob in his sleep and it felt like it was on fire! Nothing wrong, but I do have fluid filled cysts, so I have gone every year since 30 and I am now 54. Everything is always ok, but it is nice to get that reassurance from the mamogram. Good girl for going!

Those cartoons are hilarious! I love the one with the flattened boobs!!! I don't get mammograms, I'm against much of what the medical community does. If I felt a lump or something weird I would probably go, otherwise I live under the English adage of "It'll either kill me or it'll go away". But good luck today!

Ps. The cartoons were too funny.

Eeesh I hate it too! Really who doesn't? But it's a small price to pay for your health. And once a year if you have any history of cancer in your family. Better safe than sorry for sure. I wish I couldn't relate to that first one....but I can *sobs sniffle sniffle* Vanna

I am so pleased to read your blog your pics are brilliant, and should be placed on the wall of all Mammogram suites. I have been a survivor of breast Cancer for ten years. I was 40 when I was diagnosed with Pacillary cancer. I tell my girlfriends who are scared it’s nothing to be scared of it’s a little uncomfortable for a few minuets in a year and could save a lifetime of pain and sorrow. I hope all went well for you today, Thinking of you

Yep went 2 weeks ago and as usual, got called back...PANICK! My breast are dense also, at least they are not hanging to my knees. Then after many more xrays I got sent to ultrasound.... double PANICK!! All is well, no problems!! This happens every year, so I am going to ask for a diagnostic mammogram next year, where the radiologist checks the films and does additional tests right on the spot, so when you leave you know, I was 2 months late this year also, because they always call me back and it always freaks me out. Here's the deal, better safe than sorry!

Good for you! and a good tip from my sister's doctor. Because breast cancer does run in my family, he suggested having the mamomgram done 6 months after you annual check up. That way you are assured two good check a year. If your like me, I am not so good with the monthly self exam thing.

Love the cartoon! Hilarious.
Good for getting mamo! There is no age on cancer.
I was diagnosed with cervical cancer when I was 27, I'm 28 now. It is not fun.
Good luck!

Go every year! I've had one scare and it was enough to convince me that this is something NOT to avoid. My cousin worked with cancer patients for years and breast cancer has affected every age, from 15 - 82. Insurance companies are just trying to avoid the cost but it's not worth one's life.

Ok, I'm off my soapbox and yes, the cartoons are cute! :-)
