  • Question for the female members

    Today I woke with a severe pain in my breast, and got into see my doctor first thing. She recommended me to a specialist, who in turn has booked me in for a mammogram and ultra-sound.

    So my query to the female members is this; Have you had a mammogram? Does it hurt? Anyone else experienced a similar situation?

    Thanks in advance ladies for your feedback.

    Hey sweetie!

    I am so sorry you're going through this! I have never had a mammogram personally, but have heard that they hurt... I hope it's not too bad and doesn't make your existing pain worse

    You're in my thoughts and prayers... please keep us posted.

      Kap, I posted this in the Cafe.

      It really doesn't take a long time. Two views on each side, vertical and horizontal.

      I'm glad they're doing an ultra-sound, too. Sometimes denseness can hinder a mammogram.

        I've never had one...I am too young yet. BUT my mom has and she says they basically just squish you and it only hurts for like a minute. She said it would have been easier if she had bigger breasts because, well, there was more to squish.

        I hope that everything is ok with you! I'll be thinking about it until you tell me you are okay!

          I have a fibroid cyst in my right breast & had to have mine early on (like 5+ years ago).

          Truth? Yes, it does hurt. Not really all that bad. They try to get it done quickly.

          They put your boob between two plates, both vertically and horizontally.
          Your boob gets squished.

          It's a good thing you're getting one, because this is the age you should be screened yearly. It could save your life.

          No worries, it's over quickly & it's really for the best.

            Yeah, a boob sandwich is not appealing to me.

            I am really happy that I got to see my doctor, and the specialist all within a few hours.

            Damn I want smaller boobs!

              OK I'm obviously not a female member of this board but, since Ms. Calif. Girlfriend is sitting right next to me and I know she has one every year or so I asked her. She said to tell you it's uncomfortable but only for a little bit. Definitely not painful, however. Hope that helped - good luck Kap!

                Just get it looked at......OK?

                Pain is an indicator of a problem.

                Usually small, but ya never know.

                BTW, I'm a lesbian. (Therefore, one of the gals)

                Let me know.....K ? (sidenote from the "other" brain.......send pics)

                Just kidding, you know at the end of the day....I care.
