Has anyone had a mammogram and if so do you feel you treated with the same respect   as  females by the facility?

I've had both a mammogram and altrasound on by breast and I was treated as a regular patient, and with respect. Mine was done at the University of Minnesota.

I had a mammogram last December, which is how I came to know that I have gynecomastia.  I had had pain in my left nipple for 2-3 months after hitting the corner of a large box against it, so my doc sent me for a diagnostic mammogram.  I was pretty uncomfortable about it at first, but my wife and the mammogram tech put me at ease.  My tech said doing the procedure on men is a lot more common that most people realize, and that she usually had 1 or 2 male patients a week.  The radiologist's determination was gynecomastia instead of anything wrong with my breast.

Have had 2 first for possible cancer, this time for Gyno did the 3d scan this time. Never felt treated bad or any funny looks or feeling.
