Are you afraid of getting a mammogram?

Have you avoided getting a mammogram because you fear the pain of it or what you might find out? (If you are of age or at risk)

  • I don't think I'm afraid ...but I also haven't been to the doctor in 7 year either ... so maybe I am? ...I need to think about that.

  • Yes, but haven't avoided it. I will be having one in the next 2 months.

  • Yes, I am. My mom got breast cancer early, so i have to have a mammogram much earlier than most people. Not looking forward to it!
