Having found a lump in what passes for my right "breast," I was sent, as countless women we every day, for a mammogram and ultrasound. Having been a newspaper medical writer, and having heard about mammograms from the many women in my life, I had an idea what to expect. And why not, I thought, photograph my own procedure? What you see here are photographs of what a mammogram entails, as well as a couple images of the ultrasound exam.
I hope the men viewing these images come away with a greater appreciation of what women go through on a routine basis, as well as sympathy for them.
