- Star World X - Rays -

No one asks how you feel

Ready for some squishing

Cold hands that tugs and pulls

The breast is squeezed down and keep me captive

First right breast ~ left breast the same treatment

Totally humiliated, with you head glued to this Star World X-rays

I am sure that this machine was created by a man

Ten minutes you're done ~ your worst enemy is breast cancer

    Ouch. The squeeze is on. I am sure (as you have noted) that the machine could have been made much more gentle. That should have been part of the design, but the inventors were not thinking of how you feel. Sad, but as you say, there are worse things.

    If men had to have it done there would be something invented to work much better with less pain..Thanks for dropping by..Sara

    I quit having mamograms years ago. I have thermography instead. You just stand there while a camera takes pictures. It is painless. I hate the torture of that machine I used to endure. Your poem expresses that pain so well Anne-Lise. 7 ; )

    You have brought up the nightmare of every woman and every man as our friend, Victor, rightly indicated! The exam I know from my women friends is painful so I wish every woman (person) in the world to be cancer free! Wonderful writing and lovely message dear, Anne-Lise!

    Mammograms were invented a first indication of breast cancer and with early detection, lives are prolonged. How many know the even men can get breast cancers? And they are usually fatal as early detection is not possible.

    Excellent writing and a good reminder too. Thanks for sharing it.

    Difficult to give a man's view to this, but I'm glad a machine for testicular cancer, as Jan has mentioned in her comment, has not been invented. T.J

    I love the photo Anne-Lise. Perhaps thay could provide relaxing music or even a drinks cabinet?? Women the world over will warm to this poem about cold hands.

    Oh, this is definitely a topic that should be well talked about.. Sure glad I read this poem of yours Anne-Lise, I just went through this is past summer... Thank you on this blessed poem you have written... hugs Eve

    A great piece on a topic rarely if ever covered and oh so uncomfortably true but vital :-) "Squishy" is the absolute best word description :-) Wonderful writing and a really good reminder:-) thank you. blessings, lynn p.s definitely one I will revisit to read the comments.

    I didn't invent it but I'm happy that there is a machine that can detect the cancer.

    Very well written ... I'm with you Anne-Lise that the machine was invented by a man - just imagine if a woman invented the same sort of machine was invented for testicular cancer ! Mamograms aren't pleasant - I've had about 5 as I've had lumps, but 10 minutes of discomfort or the risk of not detecting cancer ... I know which I would go with every time.:-) hugs Jan xx
