A mammogram is a low dose X-ray that produces a high quality picture of the breasts. It is used for screening in order to prevent breast cancer in a woman without any signs or symptoms. Your doctor will order a mammogram based on your age, personal risk factors or breast related symptoms you might report.
For preventive purposes, women between the ages of 40 – 49 should get a base-line mammogram at age 40 and discuss with their doctor how often they need mammogram screening.
Women between the ages of 50 – 74 should get a mammogram every one to two years as they are at a greater risk.
It is extremely important for women to get mammogram screening regularly because early detection of breast cancer can save a life.
Abnormal mammogram does not mean you have breast cancer. Radiologists interpret mammograms with extreme caution and for any questionable finding additional imaging is usually requested. Most of the time, these findings turn out to be benign or non-cancerous. These can include cysts or calcium deposits or just more dense gland tissue.

“From start to finish, this process was simple and efficient. I was easily able to find a location for COVID testing for myself and my two kids, set up our appointments together, get tested, and receive our results quickly. I just really appreciate you all for making such a stressful situation easier for us.”
