Yeah, I'm in the small boob club too! Before all my 3 yearly routine mammos and then during all the biopsies and stuff when my cancer was diagnosed, I always took 2 paracetamol about 1.5 hours beforehand, not because mammos are especially painful for most people but because I'm a wimp and demand an anaesthetic jab even for a tooth filling! It might do no harm for you to do likewise just as reassurance as it's your first one. Nothing with aspirin in though, only paracetamol. All the best. xxx
Thank you so much for your comments ladies. I feel a lot better now. Still a bit anxious of the results but i know chances are it is nothing.
Good luck to everyone going through this x
Snap....I have the smallest breasts ever.....as a matter of fact, the right one (the one with the discharge) is smaller than the other. I had a mammogram last Wednesday. I was also worried, embarrassed. But it was a breeze. Not painful at all. The Radiographers are experts in their field and nothing fazes them. They have dealt with breasts of all shapes and sizes.
Hope all goes well for you. I am waiting to see aConsultant to get the results of my mammogram
Love to you and all the lovely ladies here xx
I am due to have my first mammogram next week after finding a small lump.
I know this might sound a bit daft but i have quite small breasts and was a little unsure whether they would be able to do one successfully or is it just going to take longer and be more uncomfortable. Any pictures of mamaograms have ladies with lovely big boobs 😉
I think it is just partly nerves on my part about it all but i just wondered if anyone else has any experience on what to expect.
