Squish, Squash

Turns out a mammogram is not as bad as I thought it was going to be. 

I was incredibly curious as to just how they were going to get enough of my wee AA's into the machine to actually see anything. Turns outs...there is a great deal of tugging, pulling and squashing involved but in the end they get what they need. Not a big deal at all. 

After the mammogram and ultrasound, the doctor came in and explained to me that I have a couple of cysts as well as a Fibroadenoma in my left breast...all of which are no cause for concern. They will however review everything and if anything comes up they will let me know but for right now...all is well. 


Have you had your mammogram?

  5. I have the same thing. However, I found it when I was about 16 years old and they thought after doing an ultrasound that it ws just a cyst and they should try to drain it with a needle. After about 3-4 tries I was almost in tears and they decided, oh no, it is just a fibroadenoma. Not to worry. Yea! Thanks.
