Do you have regular physical exams? (yes for YOU not your child or significant other!)”

  • Ladies please go for your check up and mammograms - I found a lump when I was in my late 20's - this is not an older women disease any longer - when my family does the Revlon Breast Cancer walk every year the survivors are getting younger and younger - Also remember don't ever be afraid to ask questions if the doctor does not like it then find another one - they are out there!

  • No I haven't been to a doctor in years. I think the last geno. appt I went to was 7 yrs ago. I guess it is time. Especially sense I am over 40 by a few years.

  • Yes, regularly. Especially mammograms ... I'm 'the poster child for early detection' according to my breast surgeon. It's critical...

  • Yes, as best as I can. Just went in for my first mammogram (baseline at 35) actually I went in at 36 1/2. Ladies, it's NOT THAT BAD! Please go.

  • I used to be good about this, but it's been a little over a year since my last checkup (besides all the giving birth and all that). I was just thinking I should go.

  • What kind of check-up? I go to "the girlie" doc once a year, but I don't visit my family practice physician unless I'm sick. I don't fix what ain't broke :)

  • Nope, I usually tend to go to the dr when something is wrong and I need a check up.... nothing routine... Probably should do a regular thing but not enough time in the day to schedule it :(
