If Only......

Breast Exam
A woman and a baby were in the doctor's examining room, waiting for the doctor to come in for the baby's first exam.
The doctor arrived, and examined the baby, checked his weight, and being a little concerned, asked if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed?
"Breast-fed,"she replied.
"Well, strip down to your waist," the doctor ordered.
She did.
He pinched her nipples, pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts for a while in avery professional and detailed examination.
Motioning to her to get dressed The doctor said, "No wonder this baby is underweight. You don't have any milk."
"I know," she said, "I'm his Grandma, but I'm glad I came."

But Alas, It is not....I go in today for a routine mammogram!!

Be sure to get yours and your loved ones mammograms done on a regular basis!! I've had so many I've forgotten the number...I have lumpy boobs.

I have a friend that doesn't even go in for the yearly pap smear and pelvic exam!

I was shocked!

Why would you not take care of your "Business"????
Her reasons were real to her.
It's take time off from work....time is money.
It costs too much. I'll bet it's way cheaper than to have surgery or cancer treatments!!
"I'll go when I feel bad."
By that time she could have a huge tumor!!!!

Take care of your "business"!! It takes good care YOU!

i am guilty........i have a beter reason then you friend though, my father dies of cancer, the treatment he went thru for two years was aweful and the quality of life during treatment is deminished 99 percent, he eventually died anyway . when he could have enjoyed the past two years he was here he spent it very ill from side effects of the treatment. Nothing i would ever want to go thru when there are no guarantees, so i would rather not know, enjoy the time i have here, and if tomorrow is my last day, i am content as i have had a great life and cant complain.

I agree. Get yourself checked. Every year. Whether you feel bad or not. Just go. Even if you are fine one year, you can be in trouble the next. That's what happened to me and I had to have a total hysterectomy at age 44. Luckily everything was benign, but I was scared until the results came back.

After being so sick last year, and having a scare not knowing what was wrong with me, I'll never go without the ole squooshie test again. Hope it all went well for you ~Hugs~.......and here's hoping the person that had to grope and knead ya into the machine was at least HAWT!
