Mammogram Update And Helpful Links

Hi Honeys
Hello again, you might remember I posted recently about my experiences while attending my very first mammogram screening appointment.  You can read that post here if you missed it. 
Mammogram update and helpful links
I've received a letter saying my screening results were "satisfactory" and that I'm to attend for screening again in three years time. 

As you can imagine honeys I'm incredibly relieved and very grateful to have been given as close as the Screening service gets to giving anyone an all clear result, but I'm also very aware that not everyone is so blessed. My dear Grandmother told me once that knowledge is a powerful thing, that things lose their ability to scare us when we learn about them. 

I've found two very helpful leaflets produced by the NHS which you can download.  They are both PDF documents and the first booklet goes into detail about what happens during screening, explains the possible results and what will happen after screening has been done.  You can read and download this booklet here honeys: Breast Screening: Information to help you decide

The second leaflet contains information on how to be "breast aware."  It describes changes to look out for and when to go see your Doctor among other useful information. You can find this leaflet here: Be Breast Aware.

It's so, so important to try to be aware of what our bodies are telling us and to then act on it.  It's up to us honeys to equip ourselves with the information we need to make healthy life choices.  I hope you're having a fabulous week so far, stay warm honeys.  Till next time dear ones, hugs always xx


  1. hooray!! always nice to get positive test results!

    1. Thank you Heidi :) It is a relief, something less to be worrying about for a while. I won't be scared when I have to go back, now that I've done it once it'll be a breeze :) It's the fear of the unknown I think? That's why I wanted to write about my experiences here, maybe it might help someone who is unsure? Thank you for visiting and saying hello honey, it means such a lot to me and has brightened a really long day, hugs always xxx
