As I was releasing a patient one day, a lady came up to me and thanked me. I asked her why she was thanking me & she told me that if I hadn't pulled & tugged at her breast to get it all in the picture her cancer would not have been found. Her Dr. told her that the cancer was very far back & it was because of the positioning that it was found.From that day since I have been very proud to be a mammographer. Even though many ladies still ask, "Do you do this all day?" My answer is "Yes, I may save a life today."
