I had mine taken by this African-American lady who had, hhhmmm, a pair of enormous breasts herself and a very low voice. As she put my tiny tits (compared to hers...) between those plastic plates and took care the image covered the armpit area also, I felt I was in knowing hands. My insurance covered the costs, but I took a 3D-mammogram on my own expense for 50 dollars in addition to that. Just in case.
My father died of cancer when he was just 45 years old.
