Turning 40 in November and just received a reminder to schedule my mammogram. Everything I read says its ok to get one while bf'ing. I know this is silly - I just hope I don't leak during it.

I've heard that they aren't as accurate because breast tissue is more dense while breastfeeding.

I read the same thing but they are still recommended as the only other option is to forgoe until you are done bf'ing. I bf both of my boys until about 18 months - so I would be pretty late. My SIL died from breast cancer that was detected when she was 48 b- so I am thinking some test is better than none.
