I heard on the news that there is a less painful (smarter) way of doing things. They actually "pull/suck" the breast out evenly into an opening instead of "smashing" them flat.. torture is right! Big, little it don't matter ..OUCH!!

I know you asked this question long ago but I found a new alternative for mammography that is in tests yet but I hope they will get that on the market very fast because I am 41 and never did a mammography because it "freaks me out" just the thought of squeezing my breasts flat! I saw the pictures, it gets like a pancake!!!
I wanted to know who was the person how invented mammography. Certainly is NOT a woman. Shouldn't someone find an easer way? Now they did find it, but there are a lot of studies and a lot of bureaucracy to go through yet. Hope they get it out there faster, I need to start screening my breasts!

I have had many many mammograms and they smart a little, but believe me, nothing hurts like breast cancer.... The hurt with a mammogram is short lived, the hurt from breast cancer hurts for a long time.... PLEASE get your mammograms !!! Don't listen to the stories about the pain.... Remeber one thing, you might be saving your own life....
