Mammograms Matter

This is the face of a woman who started having mammograms when she was 40 years old and the standard was 50 years old. I was so glad that I did, at first. Then I would have to come every 6 months. I felt like I was constantly coming because of the “density” of my breast, the 3D imager always found something.

Well, at the time that I took this picture, it had been 5 years since my last imaging and that is inexcusable.  So now we are back to annual visits and I’m so happy to report that I am another year free.  While I don’t expect any new lumps or masses, I’m more than happy to hear that nothing was found and I don’t have to come back in 6 months.  I’ll get my next imaging on November 26, 2019.  If you did not get a mammogram during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it’s not too late.  Early detection is paramount to living.

Join me this year and schedule your mammogram if you haven’t had one in 2019.  You may thank me, but your friends and family will definitely thank you for taking such good care of yourself.

See you at the lab!!
