Up until age 65 I had a mammogram every year. That was a good thing, as I had a lump removed from my right breast around 15 years ago. I now go every 2 years, but do self exams, and have my female G.P. do an annual check for me.
Because of the lump, instead of 4 times in the machine, I am lucky enough to be crushed 8 times. This is much better than having to go a second time, which did happen in the past.
After that I have my bone density test, which I am very happy to have done. This is just laying still on a bed, while the technician takes the scans. Hoping it is just as good as 2 years ago, as I love that I reversed osteoporosis.
Ladies, no you get your regular checks?
