    Mammography utilizes a mammogram machine to compress the breast tissue and then to take an X-ray picture of it. The procedure is generally painless, although there may be some discomfort during the compression. The patient is asked to place the breast on a glass plate, and the technician then compresses it from above with another plate. The patient will hold still while the X-ray is taken in order to get the clearest picture possible. indianapolis radiation oncologist

    Ah. Shelby-- mine too. My Mom had it post-menopause after being on Premarin. So that probably was the cause.

    lol ecala, mammo spam .


    My Mum is in Australia, I remember when she had it she must have asked about risk factors for me. They told her that post-menopausal cancer had a different profile to pre menopausal and is much slower growing. Its great they started testing you early though. When I move I am going to get a full work up.


    Youre in Mass? I was in Pittsfield @ yoga disney aka Kripalu last year, loved the Berkshires, Kripalu is fantastic.

    Sorry, but many of the responses here are... STUPID. Imagine if the thread was "Is drinking Diet soda bad for you?" and the responses were like "I drink a diet Coke every morning and haven't had any issues"... as if that is scientific or helpful to the discussion. Or "the fizzyness take a while to get used to"... ignoring the long term health issues or even short term damage it could be doing.

    You picked a 5+ year old thread to knock the posting habits of people discussing a sensitive issue? There are plenty of recent threads with similar things.
