Do Mammograms Hurt?

A necessary evil.  That is what I had always been told a mammogram would be.

Once you turn 40 you HAVE to do it, right?  And every.single.year.

I had heard it was painful, terrible, miserable, horrible…. So when my doctor discovered three lumps in one of my breasts, I was sufficiently terrified of both the process and the potential results.

So, naturally, I did what I always do when faced with a unique situation…  I video.  This was my experience…

Fortunately, my news was good.  I have since had a follow up mammogram and everything still looks clear. But I will tell you, the experience was not nearly the horror I had feared.  If I understand correctly, the technology… the actual equipment used for the mammograms has come a long way.

And this newest, nearly pain-free machine?  Well, it was designed by a woman.
