1. I don't think this will produce the desired result, but what do I know?

I think the thing that will convince women to get more frequent mammograms might be a less painful method of administering the screening. I believe most women object to the "pancakification" of the tissue and the discomfort associated with it; an entirely understandable reason for a bit of reluctance or even dread.

11. Especially when some experts believe that "pancakification" can make a small tumor spread...

Other countries don't push mammograms the way we do in the U.S.

If we can go to the moon, and all that....

31. It's not good for the breasts to smoosh them...

the same thing can be accomplished with thermograms. But, doctors have too much money invested in the mammogram centers.

33. I've been reading more and more

reports from researchers and doctors who don't support the use of mammograms. They can cause cancer and do.

Can you imagine a man letting someone smash his testicles and radiate them to screen for testicular cancer? I don't think so. There are more effective and safer methods, thermography being just one of those methods.

I'm not saying that there should be no screening for breast cancer, just that more effective, less painful, and less dangerous methods can and should be used.

35. I remember in HS gym class,

our PE teacher telling us to protect our breasts from blows, squashing, & basic trauma. Now you are supposed to put your breast between two metal plates that squash it & radiate it & afterwards, say, "Oh, I'm glad I've taken a pro-active step in my health."

I left a doctor who chastised me, every year, for not getting a mammogram, while I had another health issue she never addressed, my weight. When I finally got a thermogram, she was interested in the results, because she had never seen thermogram results before(!), but she mocked me & said I had wasted my money. I never went back to her.

36. I have a doctor's appointment

next week and we'll probably go round and round over the mammogram issue. I did it once and I'm not doing it again. If she withholds my hormones, I'll order the suckers online. I'm tired of the fight.

38. ...

After dropping Dr. AMA, I went to Planned Parenthood, where they were happy to hear I was doing something proactive about my breast health. They gave me a list of other options, (MRIs, sonograms, etc) & the positive & negative aspects of each option. How scientific & logic based.

I think you can ask to have your records transferred. Do you have a PP in your area? It is a wonderful organization. You don't always get the same physician/practitioner, so if you have specific needs, PP may not be for you, but if you have general health needs, they are great.

* And I may be wrong about specific health needs. I haven't needed that, so I don't really know what PP can do for people i those situations."

46. I never thought of using Planned Parenthood

since family planning isn't one of my concerns. I had a hysterectomy at the age of 32.

15. So I am led to understand.

I have not personally observed that, though. Although I have accidentally ended up a number of times in Beverly Hills, my only thought when that happens is to get away from there. My kinfolks advised me to do so.

One wrong turn, and you always end up in Beverly Hills, it seems.

Since that's essentially what it is. Oh, and don't forget to put the taco press high up -- like you would for the average 6' woman.

23. Yes, they are important to get.

My mother had breast cancer. Found it on her very first mammogram.
She had never had one until she was 68, the same year my dad passed away.
Their doc told her it was time she started taking care of herself. She scheduled
her for a full physical, and that's when the found it.

I know they're important, but I still hate 'em!

21. Mamming is passé

Juanita Musson, restaurateur extraordinaire, was doing it fifty years ago. If she like a customer and didn't chase him off with a rolling pin, she'd she’d sneak up behind a customer, one pendulous breast in each hand and clap them over the unsuspecting person’s ears.

Apparently Tommy Smothers frequently got this treatment as did a number of celebrities who would make the after-show trek out to Juanita’s Sausalito restaurant on a regular basis in the 60s.
