Mammograms are a Piece of Cake

There has been so much controversy about the importance of both self exams and yearly mammograms.

There have been those that say self exams are not necessary. I am here to tell you that it is very important to know your body! While doing a self exam I found a pea size lump which I had not felt before. This led to my calling for a mammogram and my diagnoses of breast cancer. Thankfully I found it early!!

I have also heard some say that Mammograms may not be necessary every year. Well, since early detection is the key to survival I believe you should get "the girls" checked every year. Some forms of cancer are very aggressive so time is of the essence.

There are also those that are afraid of the discomfort or are embarrassed, etc. Ladies, a few moments of discomfort and a little embarrassment are nothing compared with losing your life. If you haven't scheduled your mammogram this year, do it now!
