Breast Screening

This afternoon I went along for my breast screening appointment. It was in a mobile unit parked behind my GP surgery and luckily there were plenty of parking spaces left still. I was a bit nervous, not about the risks of breast cancer or of the reports of false positive results, but more about actually going in to have it done.

It was all very friendly and efficient though. I simply went in and was treated just like any other woman there. In fact my being trans was not mentioned in any way though I assume they could see that is the case. The squashing part is not comfortable and it takes a bit of doing to stand in just the right way. It pays to take a cardigan to these things too as you can cover up with it while waiting after taking off top and bra.

It is recommended that all transgender women who have been on HRT go for breast screening. There is absolutely no reason not to.
