Where I live, it's not reccomend to do a screening until one is 40-45. And if there's a history/high risk of cancer, one can start at 30. So, I don't have the personal experience nor have any friends at that age to tell me of their experiences. But from what I've read, it's different from woman to woman.
I believe most young Women mostly should have a mammogram yearly just to be careful cause you never know when someonewill get any tumors etc I also heard of breast cancer in Malesi never got a mammogram and maybe as a Male i should sowho knows but we all got to be careful , i never heard of a mammogrambeing painful maybe a little uncomfortable but that's about it?
My mom said it wasn't that painful just discomfort. But she wished it was done earlier by doctors. Painful or not, if you plan to do it, better do it. It can change your future.Early detection of cancer is very easy to treat and very minor procedure. But not detecting can not just lead to spreading to other body parts and death but a very painful death. Not detecting early enough may end up in losing a breast. So go ahead do the mamo and live peacefully and healthy.
by the way, cancer can advance stages very fast like within matter of weeks. So if you have been advised to check don't postpone but do it immediately and get it out of the way and move on.
My mom had lots of them cuz she had cancer 3 times, she says they are uncomfortable and can get painful especially if they can't get a good enough look and they have to do it over and over again
I’ve never had one but I assume it would be incredibly painful. It doesn’t feel good to have your boobs squeezed that tightly.
I have them done every three months. The more breast you have the more painful they are. But they are mostly uncomfortable.
From anecdotal reports I’ve heard it’s more uncomfortable than painful but does involve having your boobs squished between two plates
I have heard some women say it is uncomfortable and a few say that it was painful. In spite of the fact that I am a man, I have had a mammogram. For me having my man boobs squished was only slightly uncomfortable. But then again, I don't have much. LOL! In case you are wondering, my doctor was just checking me for breast cancer as a precaution. Breast Cancer affects about 1,000 men every year in the US. But not me :)
There actually was a korean drama about male breast cancer a couple years ago. If it runs in the family men definitely should get checked out.
Yes, especially since they have to smash your boob on the table to get a good picture.
It's not fun but it isn't bad. I'm small and have a high threshold for pain. They basically squeeze your breast between two plates in different positions.
I haven't had one yet, but I understand they can be painful for smaller breasts, as they have to smash the boob somewhat and smaller boobs have less surface area to smash.
Uncomfortable but still ita better to have them checked for cancer...My aunt had breast cancer , been in remission for 15 years now
They involve flatting the breast which can be very uncomfortable...
Painful depending on breast size because they squeeze it flat to see everything when scanned from what I was told
They’re always uncomfortable, and can be a bit painful depending on where you are in your cycle.
It doesn't hurt you like right in the place , but the rays harm u
It’s a fricking X-ray not getting shot in ur left tit
It’s literally machine crushing your titties lol
All these guys who apparently had mammograms done. Lol xD
I've never had one before, but I most certainly hope not.
No ideaWhy did you recently change your profile picture, especially since it's still not you
I changed it to fanart so that people wouldn't assume it's me
I want it to be you though
The stuff I post on here is too personal to have connected to my real identity.
I went anon. you can too
I’m a C38 & it didn’t hurt at all
I'm a guy, but I have been told E.
I haven’t had one yet.
Mine was a bit when I had one
Was it a routine breast exam or a cancer screening? Sorry to pry
@Lemia Just went for a routine breast exam
In what way was yours painful if you dont me asking
I haven’t had one
I would guess pretty comfortable.
I'm a man
