Hello, I had bilateral Breast Cancer in 2012, Lumpectomy's, Chemotherapy, Herceptin Radiotherapy and Letrozole for 10 years. I had annual mammograms and this year was told it would be my last one annually and now would be asked to go every three years. I was also told that where both my cancers were are in a place where Mammograms are difficult to pick up. I am worried to leave it every three years, and asked if I could pay for one annually but the nurse said that having a mammogram every year also has it’s risks of radiation. I have had Thyroid Cancer too and radiation can cause this.
What are your thoughts on this.
