Because of my family history, the "finger up the ass" started at 35 for me! rofl It was indeed an "awakening" into middle age. I started getting mammograms in my late 30's and up until I was 45, my insurance refused to pick up the tab. Of course, they'd change it when I went over their age limit! lol S

My insurance is covered by Medicare and is a HMO so I dont know what their younger than 40 policy is since I started getting mammograms at age 40. My thinking here is that if you are at high risk for breast cancer and the doctor recommends a mammogram that your insurance would pay at a younger age with a written order from the doc just like any lab test. If it is your idea to get a mammogram at a younger age then you would pay the cost for the peace of mind unless you can find one of those free mobile clinics in your area . I think the finger up the ass starts at 50 as I recall ( hmm I wonder how much the DOC gets paid for that??? LOL)

Out of curiousity, Goats, does your insurance pick up the tab if you are under 40 or 45? Our insurance just now (within the last two months) added coverage for a yearly mammogram on the policy for women under 45. Until then, if you wanted one, you were on your own for the cost. And I agree, the "finger" is a lot worse! lol S

Well Miss Poly breast cancer can occur in young women too so the doc who wants to do a baseline mammo at 35 is not off the mark. In any case you might as well get used to having one a year for the rest of your life just like the yearly vaginal exam and having your teeth cleaned. They already have another way to do a mammogram without the compression but the equipment is expensive and not in most x ray centers yet. I think you just lie down and your breasts fall thru a hole or something so maybe the future will hold an easier way for us to be checked. Now if they can just stop shoving their finger up my ass I would be a bit happier.. LOL

The debate goes on. Some even will tell you that mammograms put you at greater risk of breast cancer because of the radiation, at least if you get them as often and starting as early as some doctors recommend.

On the other hand, they can save lives by detecting problems early.

Your family history is probably your best guide to your risk of breast cancer.

Good morning Poly. The mammogram is not excruciating pain. It is just slightly uncomfortable for a few seconds whilst they compress the breast tissue. The person doing the mammogram will pull your breast tissue gently out to fit on the flat surface then a thing will come down on the tissue and compress it for a few seconds take a picture then let up. Mammograms are a bit more tricky if you have breast implants because they have to displace the implant then pull your natural tissue out to compress it. A big more uncomfortable but still no big deal. Plan a shopping trip afterward and treat yourself to a good lunch then pat yourself on the back for being a good girl... It will be okay... Love Mrs. Goats
