  • Nothing not even lotion. Bring your deodorant with you. Put some on after the apt. If you go straight to the apt right after you shower. I doubt you will get funky.

  • I always schedule mine for early morning. Then, I just take my deodorant and use it after. It's just a minor inconvenience and we all need to get those mammos!

  • The place I went had wet wipes for in case your forgot to not wear deodorant and could wipe it off. Warmed gowns too. Everyone there is in the same position. It's more important to have the mammogram than wear deodorant.

  • Where I go they have wipes and spray deodorant, but I take my own with me since I'm sensitive to some.
