so if you are over 50 but with a high franchise, you still have to pay for yourself? It's not offered for free by the governement?
Nope, it's not free. You pay for pretty much everything here. But as meloncollie said, it's pretty inexpensive. I want to say that mine was no more than about CHF 200, and I had a digital one in a private hospital. I paid more than $300 for mine in the US - you pay separate fees for mammogram itself and the radiologist to read it (in the US). And even with a low franchise (CHF 300), if it's the first thing you have in a year, you'll pay for it out of pocket.

It's important that you go to your gyn regularly and work out your own screening plan accordingly. I think that if your gyn warrants additional screening, then insurance should cover it... but that may depend on insurers and canton... There may be differences in French and German speaking parts of Switzerland too... someone was telling me that the French speaking parts encourage more frequent screening. Remember that your health insurance practices are largely determined by your canton, too.

Most breast cancers are still found by examination (either self exam or doctor). Whether that's because enough women don't get mammograms, or mammograms don't find enough cancers it's hard to say.

I once had to come back for an additional screening in the US. They showed me what concerned them. It was a speck the size of a sesame seed, but it wasn't there before. How people read these things is beyond me.

Re: Hooray for healthy boobies!!

Dear Peg A,

After so many requests for pictures of your boobies, I think you should consider the option to take few shots and post them here! This is one in a lifetime chance .
You can do it with pure educational purpose, just to show how healthy boobies look.

P.S. congratulations

Hey, maybe you could get the mammogram image. Totally G-rated.

Re: Hooray for healthy boobies!!

Good for you Peg.
It's important.
And if I may add, if, further to a mammo, they (Drs) don't like what they see..... they move extremely fast and you're settled within approx. 3 days.

3 days of pretty painful waiting, but tis all forgotten with the relief you feel when the biopsy comes back negative.

I'll stop there, but I do feel for the girls who don't get good news.

So yup ladies, get your mammos

ps. honestly.... don't care how much it costs, here, in the US or elsewhere. Just get'em done

A friend of mine did her doctorate on developing a new type of breast scanner. Her thesis included nearly 150 pages of scanned breasts.

The novelty wears off, trust me.
