So I'm relatively young in the whole 'start screening for breast cancer' thing. I'm 30 and the recommended age is 40 for annual tests.
Yet today, because of my mom who passed away last month, and other things that have happened recently,
I went in to get my very first mammogram.
And you know what? As much as I've heard about them, it really wasn't all that bad. Ok it IS a bit squishy. Or a lot. But a few seconds of squishy goodness is totally doable. Sure it's not like it's a cake walk, but it's certainly nothing to be afraid of
or put off because of ______ (fill in your blank).
Because bottom line, early detection could make a world of difference.
So go do it ladies. It's worth it.
