We’re Here To Support And Empower You

We understand that getting a mammogram can be unsettling. You might not know what to expect or you might be nervous about the results. Our care team has created a guide to address some of your concerns about mammography and put your mind at ease. This downloadable guide provides answers to questions, including:

  • Are there different types of mammograms?
  • How is a mammogram performed?
  • How do I schedule a mammogram?
  • How will I receive my results?
  • Is a mammogram painful?
  • Who should get a mammogram?

WHAT IS MAMMOGRAPHY?
Mammography is an X-ray examination of the breast. Mammograms make it possible to detect breast cancers, benign tumors, and cysts before you can feel them. The latest digital mammography technology takes very detailed electronic images of your breast, which can be enhanced by computer technology and even transmitted electronically in situations where remote access is required.

WHEN SHOULD I GET A MAMMOGRAM?
A mammogram is the most powerful and effective tool available to detect breast cancer at the earliest possible stage before it can spread to other body parts. Many factors determine when you should have a mammogram, such as your family history, risk factors, and age. Any woman over the age of 25 should have a diagnostic mammogram if any unusual breast symptoms — such as a lump, pain, nipple thickening, or discharge — or a change in breast size or shape are detected. Otherwise, ask your physician when a mammogram is recommended.

ARE THERE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MAMMOGRAMS?
Mammography may be used either for screening or to make a diagnosis. A screening mammogram is an X-ray of the breast used to detect breast changes when you have no signs of breast cancer. It usually involves two X-rays of each breast. A diagnostic mammogram is an X-ray of the breast used to diagnose unusual breast changes, such as a lump, pain, nipple thickening, or discharge, or a change in breast size or shape.
