"October was breast cancer awareness month. I was working and traveling so I punted my annual check up a few weeks. I went to go see my friend @sonobreasts for a radiation-free, pain-free breast scan. I like to do these in between mammograms to cover all my bases," she captioned the photo alongside a cherry emoji. Gwyneth went to SonoBreasts in Santa Monica for her appointment.
