As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, among other things I had my annual screening mammogram done yesterday. Just 24 hours later, I am holding the faxed report in my hands with the word “BENIGN” in big bold letters.
Scattered fibroglandular elements and calcifications were seen, all harmless. The only recommendation was to get another screening mammogram in one year.
As I mentioned yesterday, the very few minutes of discomfort required for a mammogram don’t even bear thinking about and are so worth getting a report like this.
Ladies, please get your mams grammed!
P.S. Those in the Flemington, NJ area, consider getting your next mammogram done at PINK Breast Center. They also do DEXA (dual X-ray absorptiometry) scans to measure bone health and offer a medically directed weight management program.
