Digital Mammograms at Newport Hospital

I went for my annual mammogram Sat. & appreciated the early call that there had been a number of cancellations & could come earlier.

The actual test takes hardly any time now- ?1o min. at most. The operator uses buttons to manuveur the equipment & received an immediate monitor pic.

Breast cancer is curable if detected early. Every woman needs one! An ounce of prevention & all that. There is now a center in Portsmouth which can do the same. The one in Newport is open 6 days/week. As a rule of thumb, women over 40 need one every year. These tests are said to reduce mortality by 30%. These digital pics along with new software are state-of-the-art.

Okay- a joke:

The Knob

A woman visited her plastic surgeon who told her about a new procedure called "The Knob," where a small knob is placed at the top of the woman's head and could be turned to tighten up her skin and produce the effect of a brand new face-lift.
Of course, the woman wanted "The Knob."Over the course of the years, the woman tightened the knob, and the effects were wonderful, the womanremained young looking and vibrant.

After fifteen years, the woman returned to the surgeon with two problems. "All these years, everything hasbeen working just fine. I've had to turn the knob many times and I've always loved the results. But now I've developed two annoying problems: First, I have these terrible bags under my eyes and the knob won't get rid of them."
The doctor looked at her closely and said, "Those aren't bags, those are your breasts."She said, "Well, I guess there's no point in asking about the goatee."
