My wife had breast cancer 18 years ago, was the impetus for us getting married. The tumor was interductal and non-palpable, was 4cmX3cmX7cm, large but no lymph node involvement. She had a radical mastectomy, radiation and chemo.

Even if uncomfortable and a bit embarrassing it is worth it, the wife skipped the previous one and her oncologist said if her tumor had gone undiagnosed another 4 months she would have been terminal.

Had problems with the insurance on her last mammogram and had to go talk to billing at the hospital where it was done; I asked why if she only has 1 boobie the cost wasn't half, didn't get any kind of a straight answer to that one.
