Mammogram?

I am only 26, but my physician has scheduled a mammogram for me because she had some concerns after my exam (and we have a heavy family history of breast/uterine/cervical cancer).

Have any of you had to have one so young? How painful was it?

I also have to have a Tissue Untrasound.

  • I am big boobed and so far my mammograms have not hurt. I'm sorry you are having to go through this testing so young though. Here's hoping that you get tested and it showns all good!!

  • I got my first one at 50 there is nothing to it and it does not hurt. Please make sure you go if you have a family history of Breast cancer, the earlier that it is caught the best chance of surviing it will be.
