Prepare for your Mammography
Before you schedule a mammogram with us, we recommend that you
discuss any signs, symptoms, findings or problems in your breasts with your doctor. In addition, inform your doctor of any pertinent history,
including prior surgeries, hormone use, or family or personal history of breast cancer.
When you're ready to set up your appointment, don't schedule your mammography for the week before your period if your breasts are
usually tender during this time. In that case, the best time is one week following your period.
American Cancer Ssociety also has these recommendations:
- Do not wear deodorant, talcum powder, or lotion under your arms on the day of the exam. This can interfere with
the mammogram by appearing on the x-ray film as calcium spots.
- Describe any breast symptoms or problems to the technologist performing the exam.
- If possible, obtain prior mammograms and make them available to the radiologist at the time of the current exam.
- Ask when your results will be available.
When Should a Woman Get a Mammogram?
Breast cancer strikes about 180,000 American women yearly and kills about 44,000, according to both the American
Cancer Society (ACS) and NCI. Next to skin cancer, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women in
the United States. It is second only to lung cancer in cancer-related deaths. Although the risk of developing the disease
increases as a woman gets older, it can occur in young women and even in a small number of men.
While there has never been a disagreement on the health benefits of annual screening mammographies for women age
50 to 69 according to ACS, there has been a split among health-care organizations about when and how often women in
other age groups should get a mammogram. Current guidelines from ACS recommend women age 40 to 49 have a routine screening mammogram every one to two years, with the first one beginning at age 40.
NCI agrees that women in their 40s who are at average risk for breast cancer should have a screening mammogram
every one to two years. In addition, the institute says women who are at increased risk due to a genetic history of breast
cancer, or who have had breast cancer, may need to get mammograms at an earlier age and more frequently.
