• A mammogram is a type of imaging that uses a low-dose X-ray to produce an image of internal breast tissue. A screening mammogram plays a central part in the early detection of breast cancer because it can show changes in the breast up to two years before a patient or physician can tell the difference. 

    A diagnostic mammogram is a state-of-the-art test used to evaluate a range of cancerous and noncancerous (benign) breast issues, such as: 

    • Breast lump
    • Breast pain
    • Any changes in the breast including benign tumors

    Other diagnostic imaging options may include a 3D mammogram, breast ultrasound, breast MRI or breast biopsy.

    How Often Should You Get a Mammogram?

    Women age 40 and older should have a screening mammogram every year, as well as a clinical breast exam. Women at increased risk due to a strong family history of breast cancer should ask their physician about screening before age 40, as well as about the frequency of screening.
