Good for you Laura. Maybe I should follow suit. My mom has been pushing me to get a mammagram done for years, we have a high rate of breast cancer in the family. I tell her I am so small if anything was growin in there I'd notice!

i will go in at some point this year to discuss whether i need mammogram (i think age suggestion may have changed on that tho??)...my OB is ok with PAP every other year, but i've been having them annually just really because of all these pregnancies

In uk we are meant to go every 3 years but I forgot and only last year had my smear after 5 years . They don't check the boobs till we 50 over here ! Unless you find something.iv got to be careful with bowl cancer as iv the gene .my mum .my grandmother.and uncle all had it. My nan and uncle died from it . My mum had it at 58 and was one lucky lady. She been cancer free for 2 years .I think we should all get checked for bowl cancer too.
They do a 5yr pap test here for HPV, which is one of the leading causes of cervical cancer. You are still expected to go annualy for a general pap to check for any other abnormalities. My dr hasn't mentioned mammogram, so not sure what the suggested age for that is?
