Concerned Bloggers Association ~ Mammograms

It’s not a monster! It’s just a mammogram!
Relax, it just wants to take a picture of your breasts.

Step One ~ You will undress above the waist and wear an open wrap paper dress, which is provided by the mammography facility. A breast-imaging technologist will place the patient in front of the machine and position each breast, one at a time, on the mammography equipment. The technologist will position the your breast in the place for obtaining the best image of the breast. A paddle is then used to gently compress the breast so that the tissue is flattened. You will feel squeezed.

Step Two ~ When the breast is positioned and compression is complete, the technologist will leave the room or step behind a screen. Once shielded, the technologist will turn on the x-ray source to transfer the image of the breast onto the x-ray film or the digital detector. The process of positioning and radiating is repeated for additional views of the same breast and for the other breast. The entire procedure for screening mammography should take 15 to 20 minutes for a screen-film examination and 5 to 10 minutes for digital mammography.

Step Three ~ The mammography films are interpreted by a radiologist, who will look for abnormalities and compare the new films to previous mammograms, to detect any changes. You can get dressed now.

TaaDaaaa! That’s all there is to a mammogram.
See that wasn’t so bad, was it?

Concerned Bloggers Association ~ Prostate Exams

I’m Dr. Inga and yes, I am a medical professional.

At some point most men will either be offered a prostate examination as part of general health screening, or it will be advised because of their age (usually 50+) or some problem relating to difficulty in passing urine. The examination takes only a minute or two and should be entirely painless. Here’s what to expect from a prostate examination.

Prostate Exam Procedure
I will need to insert my finger into your rectum in order to examine the prostate gland.

Step 1: You will be asked to stand, feet apart, facing the examination couch and bending forward so that your arms or elbows are on the couch. If you’re nervous about not being able to see what’s going on, you can ask me to describe each step to you before it happens.

Step 2: I will put on a surgical glove and cover my finger in lubricant.

Step 3: My finger will be inserted in a downwards angle as if pointing to the belly button. You may feel a little pressure, but there shouldn’t be any pain or discomfort. If it hurts, tell me immediately.

Step 4: A few seconds may elapse as I wait for the external sphincter muscle to relax. I will move my finger in a circular motion in order to identify the lobes and groove of the prostate gland. A normal sized prostate gland is around 2-4 cm long and triangular in shape. I will also expect the prostate to feel firm and rubbery.

Step 5: I will tell you when I’m going to remove my finger and then offer you some tissue or pre-moistened wipes to clean off the lubricant.

TaaDaaaa! That’s all there is to a prostate exam.
See that wasn’t so bad, was it?
