My mom has had 6 mammograms done and insists that not one of them was ever painful or even really that uncomfortable. I believe her, she's never sugarcoated anything with me!

You need to relax and let the technician know your concerns and she will help you through your mammogram. I never had any problems, I just take a deep breath and deal with it. It really isn't that bad.
