My goodness, mammograms have been oneof my hot buttons for a long time. 7 years ago, after not having had a mammo for 6 years, I decided to go to a spcialized breat clinic in Monmouth Co., NJ. Of course, not knowing my breasts, and with my films so old, she saw something and recommended I have a biopsy immediately. I did. Everything was fine, but the agony I went through until those results came back was excruciating.
But take heart, the older you are when you get breast cancer, the less aggressive it is, because we don't have the hormones coursing through us. I worry about my young daughter, and have been watching the brave girl Amy Robuck on Good Morning America. 40 years old, and just had a double mastectomy and is back on the air while receiving chemo. Now that's courage.
Hang tough. You'll make it through.
