Avoid wearing any creams, deodorants, lotions, or perfumes around your arms or breasts the day of your mammogram. These can affect the images taken of your breasts. Small particles from these products could show up on the images and cause confusion.
Try to go to the same mammography center each year so your images can be easily compared. However, if you are going to a new center, try to forward your previous mammogram images to them. It will also be helpful to your doctor to bring a list of the previous centers you have been to and on what dates, and a list of any other breast treatments you’ve had.
Since images will be taken of your breasts, it will be more comfortable to wear a two-piece outfit so that only your top half will be exposed.
Mammography is the medical X-ray imaging of the inside of a breast. A mammogram is an exam that helps detect or diagnose breast diseases in women.
Mammograms usually only take about 15 minutes.
It depends on your age and other risk factors of developing breast cancer. If you are healthy, it is recommended to get an annual mammogram between the ages of 45 and 55. For women over 55, biannual checkups are recommended. However, if you are in a high-risk category for breast cancer, a doctor will likely order mammograms for you beginning at an earlier age and at a higher frequency.
You can visit Tripment Health to find a mammography facility near you. You can also contact local hospitals, clinics, or women’s centers.
It is recommended that you start getting mammograms at the age of 45. However, if you are in a high-risk category for breast cancer, a doctor might recommend that you start annual checkups at an earlier age.
You should consult your doctor after receiving abnormal mammogram results. Abnormal results do not always indicate that you have breast cancer. An abnormal finding could be a cyst, benign lump, or a non-cancerous tumor. In most cases, you will be called back for a follow-up mammogram to compare the two sets of images to fully understand the situation.
Everyone’s experience is different. Some patients feel pain, while others feel nothing at all. Most women have reported discomfort when pressure is applied during the X-ray process. However, this part should only last a few minutes.
