Is getting a mammogram really difficult if your breasts are ticklish?

    Being ticklish you can willingly block it out mentally block it out. So turn off the tickle. If she knew it was coming. E.g. she had an established doctor appointment. She waiting a long time in a waiting room so she shwould be ready for the doctor and she knows what the appointment is for. If the doctor isn't careful she might sue for malpractice.

    I never met a girl with ticklish breasts. That seems like it would be bad news for her.

    Having a Mammogram is NOT ticklish at all............they use a machine that flattens the boob like a pancake.

    You just hold your breath, do not move and wait for the clamp to unclamp and the pain to go away.

    I was advised to take paracetemol before the exam. I am glad I did, because it is quite painful. Certainly not ticklish.

    Trust me--mammograms don't cause the breasts to be tickled. The machine you'll place your breast in will compress it and it will be locked in place in order for the pictures to be taken. It can be tolerated, but you won't be thinking about being ticklish.

    No.

    Mammograms do not tickle.

    Tickling is the last thing to worry about. They just crush those suckers

    then take the picture.

    no one touches your breasts, you have 2 lumps of metal squashing them,

    Believe me it's far from ticklish.

    No. Having a mammogram is sort of like being inside a trash compactor, with a flat plate that pushes on your chest.

    How come *I* know this and I'm a man, yet you don't? There is a new model, not much yet used, in which the plate is vaguely breast-shaped and is considerably more comfortable than being squished.

    No, the plates put pressure on the sides or top/bottom, it's nothing to do with being ticklish, it's a steady pressure.
