The last “mammogram” I had wasn’t one; it was a “thermogram”. Non-invasive, didn’t smash my breasts. The first and only mammogram I had smashed my breasts until, if I’d had a tumor, it would have been busted into a hundred pieces. - I had to go to some effort to find a clinic that thermograms, then it was a bit more expensive than the discounted mammogram the doctor ordered, but worth it to me.
