Make Your Mammogram a Positive Experience: Author Offers Guidelines and Tips to Change Women's Negative Attitudes Toward Mammograms
Date:3/20/2008

HOUSTON, March 20 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the National Cancer Institute, 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. More than 40,000 women will die of breast cancer in the United States this year. The disease is second only to lung cancer as the leading cause of cancer deaths in American women.

Throughout her career as a mammographer, Carole Aydell has heard countless excuses for why women refuse to get mammograms. Her new book, "Baring Your Breast -- Mammograms: A Positive Experience" (published by AuthorHouse -- http://www.authorhouse.com), stresses the importance of mammograms for the early detection and prevention of breast cancer, and provides women with the tools necessary to make their next mammogram experience a positive one.

Whether you are preparing for your first mammogram or recovering from a past negative experience, "Baring Your Breast" will let you know exactly what and what not to expect. It takes readers step-by-step through the mammogram process, from deciding on a facility to interpreting the final report of the exam, in the hope of eliminating women's fear of the procedure:

By sharing this information with you, I hope you realize you are not

alone in your fear of mammograms. Learning about the mammogram process

will help eliminate your fear and show you that it's a simple procedure

that has suffered from a bad reputation.

An informative and eye-opening guide, "Baring Your Breast" supplies readers with a better understanding of four main interrelated issues: why mammograms should not be painful and what to do about it if they are; the importance of breast self-exams; how to drastically reduce the number of women lost each year to breast cancer; and why early detection is the only protection:

You should encourage, not discourage, those you care about to get yearly

mammograms and clinical exams, and to perform breast self-exams every

month. By spreading the words to friends, co-workers, mothers, daughters

and sisters -- and even men who are also at risk for the disease -- you

can help save their lives.

Carole Aydell, R.T. (R) (M), graduated from radiology school in 1987 and has worked as a mammographer for more than two decades. She taught the basics of radiology to fourth-year students at the Louisiana State School of Veterinary Medicine for three years, and worked in the area of emergency room trauma for five years. She also spent four months training at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

Aydell has traveled to many cities working as a mammographer and educating women and men about mammograms, with the hope of creating a more positive reputation for this life-saving process. "Baring Your Breast" is her first book.
