What is a mammogram?
A mammogram is a very effective screening tool for early breast cancer detection. During this non-invasive procedure, breasts are compressed between two firm surfaces to spread out the breast tissue. Then, an X-ray of the breast tissue is taken, so that a doctor can examine the images and look for signs of breast cancer.
Breast exam recommendations
There are different kinds of breast exams. The American Cancer Society recommends:
- All women should receive a clinical breast exam by their healthcare providers each year.
- All women should perform a breast self-exam each month.
- Women 40 years and older should receive an annual mammogram.
