Cancer Lesson #65: Yes, Mamm, or You Don’t Get a 50% Discount for Having Only One Breast
Back in October, 2011, my oncologist said, “Come in for a mammogram of your left breast in March.”
Just my left?
My mind went blank for a moment before I remembered. Although I have a breast of sorts on my right side, it’s a placeholder with no breast tissue.
Hence, no mammogram.
And, no, I don’t get a fifty percent discount on my screening. I tell myself it’s because they have to look extra hard for anomalies.
As for you, please take this as a reminder to get an appointment for a mammogram on your calendar. It might save your life.
