I had one about 8 years ago and I have one scheduled for October 25th.

Never forget that you are a child of our Heavenly Father and that makes you extraordinarily awesome!

So true Artchick, I had to come back this year for a second one too, due to "something" it was decided for me to come back in 6 months which is now.

I have a mammogram every year. I had one this year and was told to have another one, because they thought I might have a problem. I had a second one and was told everything looks okay but I should have another one in six months.

I have had the same results before, and believe it is because I had two fatty benign tumors removed when I was a teenager and have scar tissue from that, and it shows on the X rays.

This year I decided not to get one because of that, but my doctor advised me to anyway, She said I am at high risk, and just when I don't have the mammogram might be the year when I do have a real problem.

So get a mammogram, it is important

My mammogram is coming up next month. They had found a lump 5 years ago and removed on me and luckily it was not cancer. I still do self checks and get check every year because of that.

I have many a friend who are breast cancer survivors and some that did not. It is very hard to go through it. Even though you think you many not get it and your family doesn't haven't a history of it doesn't mean you shouldn't have one. I am adopted and I don't know my past history so I do everything to insure a long life.

My words to those that think they shouldn't have one is - YES, You should. You just don't know. Here is something to think about - I had a friend in College that no history in the family of breast cancer but, she loved sports and played a lot of it. She told me when she was younger she was hit in the breast area pretty hard with a ball and never thought anything about till years later when she had problems with that side. She said she doesn't know if that is what caused the cancer or not but really wishes she had said and did something about it back then. She is fine and still live with a family but, did loose her breast.

Just something to think about.

Had mine in June - my aunt had breast cancer - had a double mastectomy - she lived a great long life.

My Grams had breast cancer in her late 80's - all tumors removed - she lived till 98.

I have mine scheduled for later this month-insurance says it must be a year and a day!
I have had 2 small tumors removed-luckily neither was cancerous but I do take it seriously and get my mammogram even though I didn't have insurance for years but I paid to get them because I realize the importance.
I lost a first cousin (who was like a sister to me) to breast cancer. It took 15 years from when she first was diagnosed but still it got her.
She was the first in our family to have breast cancer so do not feel like you can't get it because your family has no history.

I was never that good about doing self checks, but I started having yearly mammograms when I was 35 because my mother had breast cancer when she was in her 60s. Hers was treated and has never come back, and all of my mammograms have been good. emoticon

There was much rejoicing!

If I remember right, they recommend starting in your 40's as your breasts are too dense until them....but ask your doctor, the new methods my all earlier starts.

I haven't had a mammogram for about two years. So I'm due. We lost a friend of ours maybe 15 years ago because she ignored the lumps she felt. All of her friends thought she'd beaten it when after surgery and chemo she went into remission, but it came raging back after a month and there was nothing further that could be done. It was a big blow to her family and circle of friends.

Wow, that is strange with the odds at 1 in 20 something and higher by age. The women on my mothers side of the family have had at least one breast cancer survivor in each generation, my generation has two. My mother had it twice, so this is something I never neglect and encourage others not to neglect either. It is a horrible thing to see.

I have never had a mammogram...we have no history of breast cancer in my family and I personally don't know anyone who has had breast cancer....I find that odd now that I have actually written that....

I do hear of women who have or have had breast cancer...just don't know them personally.

The change begins with me and it begins now!

It is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. emoticon

Have you had your Mammogram?

Do you have a story to tell of Cancer Survival or know someone who has?

Come share your story or theirs to inspire and help others.

Lets all wear pink this month and spread the word to help get check and self check regularly for early detection.

It helped me! emoticon
