My company offers regular mammography screening but i have been too embarrassed to go. What exactly does it involve?
It is a very straight forward procedure. An X - ray is taken of your breast and the female radiographer will explain to you exactly what you to do, so there is no need to be embarrassed. You simply stand while your breast is evened out and smoothed by flattering it between two perspex plates. The x - ray is then taken. Because breasts vary in their sensitivity some women find this procedure a little uncomfortable, but for the vast majority there is no discomfort at all.
