I am a J cup woman. And have dense tissue. Glad not everyone has had my experience.

One side hurt more than the other, it's the squeezing bit. When I went back for my results I had to have a biopsy as there was a mass on the X-ray. The mammogram was far more uncomfortable than having the biopsy done.

@Verve, don't delay, breast cancer is curable, don't take this chance.
I'll put in a good word here for colonoscopies, since one saved my life. I was diagnosed with colon cancer when I was 50, had surgery and six months of chemo, and here I am, almost 20 years later, quite well. I've had six, maybe seven scopes total, with follow-up. The prep is not fun, but the procedure itself really isn't bad. Please don't delay because the thought of it makes you cringe. They absolutely are life-savers.

I'm glad you are a survivor, JudyD! Colonoscopies are lifesavers. My dad had his first and it was pretty much a piece of cake.

Dechi was mentioning a colposcopy, which is different--it is a procedure to look at the female reproductive system.

Wow! I'm currently a C and feel overly busty for my size.

That's what comes of reading PF on my phone. Little tiny print...

The scientific evidence is pretty questionable when it comes to mammograms. The benefits (lives saved by early diagnosis) are small if any, and the harms (over diagnosis and unnecessary treatment) are huge.

No mammograms for me, unless I have reason to believe that there is a problem.

I just wanted to say, the mammogram that I had gotten today was so easy. And, you know, I wouldn't call it painful, but instead, just a little uncomfortable. I was in and out of there within 20 minutes ( and that's counting getting undressed and then dressed again).
