This is to the ladies....If you can do it..Please get your mammogram's. This is Breast Cancer Awareness month. It's just a squish and you are done! You'll feel good about yourself.
Gentlemen....tell your wives, girlfriends to go get squished!
Take it from a soon to be Survivor...early detection is so important!

I was having one every year until my husband's insurance said they won't cover one on me but every two years until I turn 50. I am 47. And the last one I had they did a mammogram and a CAD view also. And things looked good. So since then I have been having them every two years. There is no history of breast cancer in my family, so I think I am ok there. Will have one this December though as it will have been two years. I do check for lumps every month though and my gynecologist checks them also every year.

Instead of an MRI, go with an's not as expensive. Glad you are all taking care of yourselves!
