      The Screening Mammogram causes only a very FEW SECONDS of discomfort. Much, MUCH EASIER than surgery, chemo and radiation.  Talk about discomfort ! DON'T WAIT until you can "feel" a lump.  Just do it NOW !

                        NOT NEARLY SO BAD AS EXPECTED ! I used Aldara on some spots on my left temple and it worked fine, with NO SIDE EFFECTS.  Apply very, very sparingly - Aldara is even more expensive, and I’m very CHEAP.  But my current Derm mentioned Aldara is a more harsh chemical - like treating BCC with chemotherapy.  And lotsa bad complaints ab...
