Mammography Both Breasts

5000+ scans done & counting

Mammography is a type of imaging technique that utilizes a low-dose X-ray system to capture images of the breasts. This procedure is an invaluable tool for breast cancer screening, helping doctors detect breast cancer in its early stages when it is most treatable. In fact, mammograms are currently the most effective way of finding breast cancer early, possibly before it has spread.

Essentially, a mammogram creates a detailed picture of the internal structures of your breasts. This can help identify any changes, lumps, or abnormalities that may not be noticeable through regular self-examinations or a clinical breast exam. It's important to remember that while mammograms are crucial for early detection, they are not perfect. Some cancers may be too small or hidden in dense breast tissue and may not be detected on a mammogram.

Specific Instructions:

When preparing for your mammogram, there's no need for any special diet or fasting. However, try to schedule your mammogram for a week after your menstrual period, when your breasts are less likely to be tender. On the day of your exam, avoid using deodorants, perfumes, powders, or lotions on your underarms or breasts. Some of these products may contain substances that could appear as white spots on the mammogram images.

As far as allergies are concerned, inform your doctor if you have any known allergies to medical adhesive or certain metals. Mammography does not usually involve any allergenic substances, but it's better to provide all necessary information.
