Dr. Robin recently went to the doctor for a routine mammogram and was relieved to learn she is in good health. While the procedure caused her temporary pain, anxiety and unpleasantness, Dr. Robin says she knows it's an important tool for the early detection of breast cancer, and it's something every woman should do.
When was the last time you had a mammogram? Are you putting it off because you're too frightened or too busy? Know that when you get a mammogram, you're taking an important step toward securing your safety and well-being—because you're worth it, Dr. Robin says. "It's something that is essential not just for your physical health, but it's a way that you show yourself—you teach yourself—that you are taking care of yourself," she says. "Your mind, your body and your spirit."
