This is totally way off the charts of what I would normally post.....
but I feel it's worth sharing.
And, it might be something that you ladies are already aware of,
but I wasn't.
I've been getting mammograms for close to 20 years,
and like most women,
there's ALWAYS somewhat of a concern that the results will come back showing something not quite normal.
(I've had several of those myself, requiring further ultrasound testing
Because of my crazy insurance.....
( I know, I'm blessed to have insurance, period )
I had to go where they said I could go,
although because of it being considered a well woman visit,
it was "free".
I didn't get my letter in the mail in the amount of time they said I would,
so I called.....
which, turned out to be a blessing that the letter hadn't arrived because I was given more info from the phone call than in the form letter I received a couple of days later.
The lady told me that the exam was "normal".....
but she went on to tell me about my risk assessment,
saying it was something like 9%.
Had I known all these years that my risk of developing breast cancer was that low, it would have certainly eased my mind!!!
(and gentlemen, if you're reading, inform your wife/sister, Mom, friend).....
ASK what your risk assessment is!!!
Knowledge can bring peace of mind!
