The Boobies Have It

So I'm listening to the news with my Father In Law, and they're talking about mammograms. Now there is all sorts of confusing info on when to get mammograms and when not to. How old do you have to be? When is it recommended? When should you worry?

People, I have a strong opinion about this. If you feel like you need a mammogram, get one.

Don't wait for some busy, tired, careless, impersonal Doctor tell you how to take care of your own boobs.

If there is a time in your life when you feel something, get a mammogram, or an ultrasound, and don't listen to a doctor if they say you should wait.

And why is all this information coming from men? Do they have boobs? Shouldn't we as women be able to set the standards for what we feel comfortable with when it comes to our own breasts?

I'm just sayin'.

Carry on.

What I love is people who say, "Well, I had my mammogram, so I'm set." As in, they think you only need one in your life!

You go girl!!

(My fave is childless doctors of either gender who tell you how to feed your children when you are nursing them!)

Ok, I have an opinion on this as well. Now, they are saying to wait to get mammos when you are 50, instead of 40. k, that is Bull Crap!! It just gives stupid insurance companies one more thing to not have to pay for! I guess they would rather pay for new boobs instead!

I agree. If you feel like you need one, get one. Done & Done.
