My very first mammogram ever at age 40 found my cancer. It all happed so fast - it got very real, very fast. Oddly enough, when I was recuperating from my mastectomy, I saw the news and all the new information about changing the age of first-time mammograms to 50. And, I am the perfect example of why not to wait until 50. If I had waited, I probably would have died. If I can get cancer - an otherwise health woman with no history of breast cancer in her family - anyone can. I was blessed - it could have been worse. We caught the cancer early so I didn't have to have chemotherapy. Dr. DeLancey and the staff at Radiology Associates were patient, kind and most of all knowledgeable through the whole experience. At first, I was shy, but now I tell everyone about my journey. I tell all women to get their mammogram each and every year. Whether they have insurance or not, they need to find the money and time, and go get a mammogram.
S. Hinojosa, age 40 - Corpus Christi, TexasWhat I am into, is telling every man and woman how this new technology TOMO 3D is helping me catch Breast Cancer Early. I had the 3D done on Monday, August 31, and the radiologist suggested an ultrasound. It was seen clearer and a biopsy was planned for Thursday, April 3, at Radiology Associates. It was thoroughly explained to me and the best news I would have the results the next day. (I had a co-worker who had to wait 2 days before they would have their results.) The wet report is in and waiting for the final report to be sent to my Doctor. Thanks so much Rosie for being very vocal about this. I likewise am telling every man and woman how very, very, important this is. If the 3D hadn't caught this in my breast it would be business as usual and the cancer wouldn't stop growing it would be worse. Depending on what my treatment will be I would love to do a testimonial. It also helps having a church family and many co-workers who believe in God too. I am so blessed to have such Christian friends.
God Bless and Thanks again
L. Edwards - 04/08/2014 I had a lump, and was very nervous about getting my mammogram. I chose to go to Radiology Associates and I'm glad I did. The technologist was friendly, gentle and offered detailed instruction regarding my exam. There was no pain or discomfort. Once the mammogram was completed, the next step was an ultrasound. Warm gel was applied - a nice touch! In the past, the gel was cold and uncomfortable. Radiologist Dr. Michael Michell reviewed the results, sat with me and explained everything in simple terms. He was so friendly and compassionate, and told me that it looked look a benign tumor. Dr. Michell recommended I get a biopsy done so I'm scheduled in April. I couldn't believe how fast everything went! And, I was also able to make payment arrangements since I did not have insurance. I found this option to be very accommodating for my situation.
If people knew how easy, comfortable and affordable it was to get a mammogram, I know more women would go get one. Thank you, Radiology Associates, for a wonderful experience!
