Thanks to Cheri at Blog This Mom and her Facebook page for the vid link below and the reminder. Have you had your mammogram yet if you’re 40– or younger if you come from family with high incidence of breast or cervical and/or uterine cancer or you’ve tested positive for the breast cancer gene?
I had my baseline at 30 because my mom was diagnosed at 40, and I’m good about routine self-exams, but I’ll be 36 this year and it’s time for me to get my second squishing and checkup. It was uncomfortable, yeah– but it’s better than a blow to the head, and certainly better than the alternatives, that’s hella for sure.
