Yup, that’s me! I wanted to show this picture because I want everyone to know that all of my health is this important to me. Diabetic mastopathy scares some, and even some docs don’t know what it is. I’ve had diabetic mastopathy since I was 28. My care routine went from a mammogram every 5 years, to a mammogram and ultrasound every year once I turned 40. At 39, I had another biopsy performed, and since that time, I’ve had three more. When I turned 45, my breast care doctor decided that we should add an ultrasound every six months and one mammogram per year. The hope is that this will get better after menopause. That's my hope, too. Until then, I’ll keep my routine, because my health is everything.
