Going For A Mammogram: Information you should Know Before You Visit Your Doctor

Background Information on Mammograms:

http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/detection/mammograms

Hey Sisters,

So I went for a Breast Exam the past week because I was curious about the health of my breast!

I know that I am way to young for a mammogram but I was very interested in writing about going to get one simply for the fact that I know women who are older than I am that have never had mammograms… Shame on all of you! If you have a family member who has breast cancer your chances of having it are more than double…. now even if you know absolutely no one who has breast cancer I still strongly suggest getting one! Better be safe than sorry I always say. Please check out the link I have provided for you at the beginning of this post and make the time to see your doctor to discuss your breast health today.
