  • least? Mammogram. They only smash things they don't probe inside with that

  • Mammogram is no big whoop. It only lasts a few seconds. Pap is far more uncomfortable and vulnerable for me.

  • pap is much more vulnerable, like the pp said, but the mam hurts more. I had to have one before my breast reduction surgery and because they were so big, she kept having to turn my nipple out. SO irritating and painful. I hate the pap too because I dont like taking my clothes off (for anyone other than my husband) so I put it off for 3 yrs. I don't have to have a mammogram regularly yet. I am not of age.
