Tips to encourage mom to get mammogram?


Question from ValleyGurl: Is there anything I can do to encourage my mother to have a mammogram? She is dead set against it, but I know she should have one. She is 55 now and going through menopause.
Answers - Marisa Weiss, M.D. Take her out to lunch, and go with her to her mammogram. Tell her that you love her, and that this is an important part of taking care of herself, for everyone who cares about her. Be a nudge!
