Har lige fået en mammografiscreening. Fordi jeg fandt en knude i brystet. Og med alt det kræft jeg har oplevet, vil jeg være sikker på det ikke har spredt sig. Heldigvis (7-9-13) synes lægen den ser godartet ud. Mener man bør bruge almindelig sund fornuft ift. mammografi. Har man en knude få det tjekket. Og hvis man ikke lige har læst Gøtzsches bog, kan man hurtigt tror at den advarer imod alt mammografi, hvilket jeg ikke tænker den gør. Derimod en opfordring til almindelig sund fornuft
