"I’m getting mine in a month for the first time and I’m 51. Hope it’s not painful or discomfort," wrote one fan as another replied: "I have been getting them since 30 (my mom had BC) and am now 56. They are uncomfortable, but not painful."

A mammogram is an X-ray picture of the breast and is used to detect early signs of breast cancer.

The 55-year-old star is best known for her starring role on award-winning drama The Closer; Kyra won an Emmy and Golden Globe for her work.

Kevin often shares videos from their farm, and has introduced fans on social media to many of their animals, including horses, alpacas and even their two goats – who were wedding anniversary gifts for Kyra.
