Revealing the girls

We give our breast many nicknames: Girls, the twins, boobies, jugs, melons, racks, fun bags, hooters, lactating lovers, tatas and the most common tits! Whatever name we have given our girls we need to take care of them.
Wikipedia defines Mammography as the process of using low-dose amplitude-X-rays (usually around 0.7 mSv) to examine the human breast and is used as a diagnostic as well as a screening tool. The goal of mammography is the early detection of breast cancer, typically through detection of characteristic masses and/or micro calcifications. Mammography is believed to reduce mortality from breast cancer. No other imaging technique has been shown to reduce risk, but breast self-examination (BSE) and physician examination are considered essential parts of regular breast care.
No questions asked mammograms should be part of every woman’s healthcare. According to the National Cancer Institute, women in their 40s and older should have mammograms every 1 to 2 years. If you have a history of breast cancer because of personal or family history, you should talk to your doctor about how often and when to get a mammogram.
So, whether they’re fun bags, melons, or deflated balloons (after nursing several babies), we need to get our girls checked.

Keep living life revealed…
