It seems everywhere you look this month it is all about the "Pink" you know, "Breast Cancer Awareness Month".  As a mammographer, I just thought I would share a few things that go through my head as I am doing mammograms:

  1. WOW! I have never seen so much hair on a nipple. Next year please wax, pluck or shave because you are freaking me out!
  2. That is a VERY intesting tattoo but no I DO NOT want to know the story behind it, spare me please!
  3. You are killing me! You pierced your nipples but you are whining about a bit of compression that lasts less than 10 minutes for the entire exam? REALLY?
  4. Just because we said no deodorant does NOT mean you couldn't shower...for 4 days!
  5. No, this is not what I have wanted to do ever since I was a little girl (for my Friend Jill who asks her mammographer this question).
  6. Those puppies are waaaaayy to big to be real...one word, REDUCTION!
