    What Happens During a Mammogram?

    FAQ's: Getting a mammogram - Do you need one? What happens during the procedure?

    Get the info you need to prepare for mammograms to detect breast cancer.

    Now that health care reform is taking place, mammograms will be covered as preventative health care. Do you think this will significantly impact how many mammograms are performed each year?

    Share your experience and why you feel regular mammograms are (or are not) important.

    Thanks Andie for the latest additions to our Tip and Resource boards! It's so nice to have all of them at our finger-tips for our use, and for noting to newbies who are asking about any of those issues.

    Blessings.
