When should I get a mammogram?
The American Cancer Society recommends that all women age 40 and up should get a yearly screening mammogram for as long as they are in good health. However, women with a family history of cancer, any new breast problem or other high-risk factors, may be recommended to start screening at an earlier age. Women should see a doctor and potentially undergo diagnostic mammography for symptoms such as:
- A palpable lump (noticeable by touch or sight)
- Breast skin thickening or indentation
- Nipple discharge or retraction
- Erosive sore of the nipple
- Prolonged breast pain
Talk to your doctor about personal risk factors before making a decision about when to start getting mammograms or how often you should get them. Family history of breast cancer and certain lifestyle choices, like smoking and unhealthy diet can increase the risk of developing breast cancer.
Different types of mammograms:
A screening mammogram, generally considered as an annual breast exam, is used to detect breast changes in women who have no symptoms of breast cancer. It usually involves two images of each breast and is powerful enough to detect breast tissue abnormalities that cannot be felt.
A diagnostic mammogram is used for women who may already be experiencing possible symptoms of breast cancer. This exam focuses in on areas of concern to evaluate abnormalities detected on a screening mammogram and diagnose unusual breast changes, such as a lump, pain, nipple thickening or discharge, or a change in breast size or shape.
Insured or Out-of-pocket?
