Fear,That is the reaction I sense when the topic of a Mammogram arises. Most women try and avoid the discussion, I know I did. However, with an increasing amount of pain on one side I decided it was time to do it. One week prior and the fears started, the Dred, the anxiety and the bad dreams. All I could think about was how much my breast would be squished and how painful it would be.  The day of I was sweating like crazy, my husband drove me to the lab, in I went to the exam room and to my surprise it was over in less than 15 minutes and it was NOTHING, it was a breeze all that worry for nothing. Yes there was a lot of pressure, but that was it. I was told later by the technician that I even had maximum compression. So if I can do it - so can you. Also, please don't spread fear about the exam, instead support women you know and encourage them to get a mammogram - it could save their life. Here are some precautionary tips for breast health from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation found on their web site:
