Diagnostic Test of the Month - Mammography

A mammogram is a special type of X-ray of the breasts. Mammograms can show tumors long before they are big enough for you or your healthcare provider to feel. They are recommended for women who have symptoms of breast cancer or who have a high risk of the disease. You and your health care provider should discuss when to start having mammograms and how often to get one.

Mammograms are quick and easy. One stands in front of an X-ray machine. The technician taking the X-rays places the breast between two plastic plates. The plates press breast and make it flat. You will have an X-ray of each breast. A mammogram takes only a few seconds and it can help save your life.
