Medical Tests and Diagnostic Procedures

My doctor is scheduling me for an EMG. What can I expect from this test and will it be painful? Is there anything I need to do to prepare for my mammogram? What exactly does an upper-GI test involve? How soon will it be safe to go home after a cardiac catheterization and what are the risks? When will I get the results back from my prostate-specific antigen test? Unfamiliar medical procedures can be daunting if you don't know what to expect. If you have similar questions to those above and want to know what's involved in your test, educate yourself.
