Mammograms

With the highly publicized return of Elizabeth Edwards' breast cancer, American women are being encouraged to take the precautions necessary to detect the disease early, including yearly mammograms. Here are a few tips that should make getting your mammogram easier:

After one breast is checked, the exam is not finished; the other breast should be checked as well

Avoid HMOs that only allow checkups above the nipple

Check to see if doctor is wearing his Mammogrammers Guild amulet

Verify that your clinic's high-end digital technology has something to do with computers

Though it may be tempting, avoid the cheaper "MammoVan"

If radiologist is not responding to your questions, do not panic; he has probably just never seen such an enormous tumor before

To promote early detection, get a mammogram every year starting at age 3
