It has been acknowledged that some women are more sensitive to the handling and pressure exerted on their breasts during a mammogram than others [1]. This sensitivity can include heightened feelings of pain, skin reddening, tingling and bruising [2]; these are considered to be acceptable risks. A small proportion of women after mammography however, can go on to experience breast pain for days. Also they may develop pressure ulcers or skin tears. These pressure ulcers or skin tears are very rarely reported.
