AUSTRALIA - Earlier this week, I finally took the plunge to have my first 3D Mammography and Breast Ultrasound done. I do not like visiting GPs, doctors, hospitals or the look of needles or the mention of the word ‘blood’. I feel queasy instantly.
Mastalgia (breast pain) is commonly found in 70% of women at some stage of their life. Part of the normal function of the body, rather than a disease. Since I have been experiencing breast pain for some time now. I thought I better have my breasts checked, instead of wondering whether I have breast cancer or not.
