Screening tests can find cancer early, when chances for survival are highest. However, there are other things you can do to be proactive in caring for your breasts.
See your health care provider if you notice any of these breast changes:
In addition to self exams and clinical breast exams performed by a physician, women should have a screening mammogram yearly starting at age 40 (or earlier as decided by you and your physician). At Prisma Health, mammograms, ultrasounds and magnetic resonance images are read by radiologists dedicated to breast imaging at the Breast Imaging Center on Prisma Health’s Patewood Medical Campus.
Screening mammography is an X-ray picture of the breast. These tests are used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. Mammograms can also be used to check for breast cancer after a lump or other sign or symptom of the disease has been found. These tests are diagnostic mammograms.
Three-dimensional (3D) mammography, also known as breast tomosynthesis, is a type of digital mammography in which X-ray machines are used to take pictures of thin slices of the breast from different angles and computer software is used to reconstruct an image. This option is available to all women and helps reduce the number of call-backs and false positive tests for those with dense breast tissue.
