I went for my yearly physical today which includes a full pap and breast exam… Thank dog I went because my doctor found a lump in my right breast. It is nothing to panic about – he is sending me for more testing and we’ll see what happens from there. I am so blessed to live in Canada.
The reason I’m blogging about this is because I want all my vagina sisters reading this to make sure that you go for regular exams. A pap smear can save your life and while you’re there make sure your doctor includes a breast exam at the same time.
Hey, and while you’re on the phone making an doctors appointment to get a pap – why not make an appointment for a mammogram as well? 🙂
Since we’re talking about boobs and healtcare, etc … my friend Jane Wiedlin is involved with Bowling for Boobies which is an organization that raises funds to help provide financial assistance to woman in the US who are experiencing financial challenges as the result of fighting and living with breast cancer.
