Breast Cancer Screening
A mammogram is a low-dose x-ray of the breast. This safe and effective first step to detecting breast cancer is routine and can often identify pathology in a breast long before a physical examination.
Finding and diagnosing breast cancer in its earliest stages increases the likelihood that treatment will be successful.
Before Scheduling a Mammogram
Schedule mammograms seven to 10 days after menstruation begins.
Bring your previous mammogram films, or request that they be sent to the imaging location of your choice, so they can be compared to the new ones.
